Join writers Kristi Anderson and Vic Klimoski for this 2024 New Year online writing consortium.
A Group of Writing Explorers
Every story is an adventure. Be part of a group of writing explorers who uncover what it means to thrive from within, in your church and in your community. The four-part series begins with discovering the importance of personal narrative, addressing woes and challenges, unearthing our vocation and dreaming new futures into being.
Each 60-minute session begins with prayer followed by a guest storyteller and thematic discourse. Participants will then have time during the session to break apart the message in writing. The group will return to share thoughts and excerpts from their work. No writing experience necessary!
In addition to the session, participants who wish to receive further writing help on their emerging story can arrange up to three 30-minute sessions with either Kristi or Vic.
The consortium will meet Mondays on Zoom from Noon-1 pm CST
January 8 Session 1: My Story Begins
January 15 Session 2: We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it
January 22 Session 3: Thriving in Vocation
January 29 Session 4: Riding the Wave into the Future
