We had about 25 students in the seminar, representing a wide variety of backgrounds and experience. Some were pastors. Others were students. Some worked for organizations such as Wycliffe, SIL, or CABTAL.
I taught the main sessions, including an opening on “What is a Christian Writer?” and at various points students were given writing assignments. Here they work diligently on a class exercise which led to the reading and critiquing of pieces they had written.
Following the general session, we split into breakout groups and I went further into the specifics of magazine article writing with the writers, while those interested in photography and illustration went to separate sessions.
