The Faithful Writer

On Saturday 28th July, CASE and Matthias Media are running a one day conference at UNSW called The Faithful Writer for Christians to think about how writing can be service. The main speakers will be Tony Payne and Greg Clarke, and then there will be a number of panel discussions: Writing as Ministry; Writing and the Internet (including yours truly on the panel); Christians and fiction; Writing for impact. Sounds fun? Registration is $70/$55 before 21st July or $90/$75 after it.

It just got a write up today in Southern Cross, including a scintillating interview with one of the panellists.

Well, I think they're plugging your writing abilities, rather than your speaking ones ;-)

Any poetry sessions? That would be truly cool

Yeah, I've been looking at this conference since it was first mentioned months ago - but unfortunately we have visitors down from Sydney that weekend. I'm keen to hear what it's like if you're going though.

No poetry - Christians are only allowed to write bad poetry.

Writing, perhaps more than other ministries, can be a little isolating

I find the idea of the conference intimidating, precisely because writing is an isolated experience.

Why does all the cool stuff happen where you live?
