Preach: How the Bible Taught Me to Write*

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

This lecture analyzes the Bible as a literary document that can teach us important craft tools, as well as emphasizing the age-old idea that writing is, first and foremost, an act of service. We’ll discuss endings and beginnings; setting the stage and stakes; making your conflicts matter; the power of scene; working with plot and memory; and literary citizenship and the life as a writer as modeled by several key Biblical characters. NOTE: This is NOT a religious Bible study and will approach this document from a non-religious perspective, as a literary text that is alive, built over centuries by multiple authors, and not divinely inspired.

*This class is a large seminar (for up to 30 people).
