Summer Course, Drew Theological Seminary, Madison, NJ
June 24 - July 3
Sophfronia Scott and Rev. Nancy Lynne Westfield, Ph.D., Professor of Religious Education at Drew Theological Seminar will co-teach a summer course offering:
Writing as Persuasive Faith: Wielding the Power of Your Words
Do you have something to say? Issues of the life of faith, justice in times of tyranny, love in the face of despair, and dignity for the smallest person needs to be voiced on the written page. This intensive course will focus upon the craft and interplay of developing creative non-fiction essays and deepening the study of personal narrative. We will read examples of forward thinking, bold writers of our time in an effort to expand our understanding of the power of what’s possible with the written word. Our time will be spent producing essays with an eye toward developing personal voice, clarifying theological perspectives, wielding the power of your words and honing a persuasive rhetoric. No previous creative writing experience is required.
