Webinar: Writing From Your Life of Faith


This one-hour webinar will give you the skills you need to write a theologically rich personal essay. Our focus will be on writing an essay of 800 to 1,000 words aimed at an audience of Christians who are theologically curious but not necessarily theologically educated. The session will teach you how to sharpen the focus of your writing; develop a personal voice and present your work professionally for publication.
