Each summer, the Collegeville Institute opens its doors to pastors, ministers, lay leaders, and other thinkers and writers for week-long, intensive workshops geared toward various levels of writing skill, genre and interest.
Each fall, the Collegeville Institute partners with other institutes, seminaries, or churches to coordinate regional workshops.
Participants, taught and guided by such prolific writers as Kathleen Norris, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Lauren Winner, and Renita Weems, come together to write, learn, and discover anew (or perhaps for the first time) the call to be writers for the life of faith.
“The Collegeville Institute offers something that writers of faith have a hard time finding these days: a supportive, understanding and professional community that really wants to see them succeed in sharing their gifts with the world.”
