Writing Faithfully Workshop // Starts February 4, 2019

Add To Cart

In this eight week course, participants will explore matters of faith as it pertains to both writing and storytelling. This course is designed to both think about what we believe and why we believe it, but also articulate, through story first, these beliefs (and doubts) as we understand and grapple with them. By the end of the course, participants will have written:

*one statement of faith
*five “found” poems based on Psalms
*two essays
*a vocabulary of faith
*one story of faith

This course focuses more on writing as exploration. While Callie believes the more we write, the better we write, this will not be so much a course on craft as it is a course on seeing what it is we believe and figuring what we believe into stories. Callie will respond to all writing assignments, but will not give full edits. Course is open to six participants.


Week One: Statement of Faith
Weeks Two and Three: Found Poetry in Psalms
Week Four: A Vocabulary of Faith
Week Five: I Wonder Reading
Weeks Six through Eight: Can I Get A Witness? Faithful Stories

Dates: February 4, 2019-March 29, 2019
