Instructor: Jonathan Callard
This course will ask, what, if anything, can make nonfiction writing “spiritual”? How to write about something so personal and powerful and share it with an audience of differing beliefs or traditions? How to move beyond the saccharine to illuminate a truth? You will choose a spiritual question or subject to explore in-depth, and will investigate this topic by writing two 500-word pieces and one article/essay of up to 4,000 words. The class will focus on getting started, gathering material, and revising for publication. Writers from all backgrounds and faiths are welcome.
Week 1: Shaping the Spiritual
Week 2: Framing the “I” in Faith
Week 3: Engaging the Other
Week 4: Speaking to You
Week 5: Re-Seeing and Representing Your Work
