Breaking the Academic Mold 10 July 2023 Venue: Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center Categories: Regional Workshop, Writing Workshop This writing workshop is for scholars of religion and theology who have written exclusively or primarily in the scholarly genre for other scholars of religion but long to share their knowledge or personal experience in a more creative way with a wider audience. Many scholars yearn to speak to a broader audience through creative nonfiction, blogs, op-eds, and memoir. Participants in this workshop will develop their writing voice in service to topics they care about, and for which they have passion and curiosity. Our focus will be on releasing the professors’ voice to the public square, giving permission to be imaginative, and finding new ways of being inspired. The application deadline has now passed.
