AJB Recommends: Writing for Your Life Conference

writing for your life conferenceI am so honored to join people like Philip Yancey, Diana Butler Bass, Parker Palmer, Sophronia Scott, Vivian Mabuni, and others as speakers at the upcoming (virtual) Writing for Your Life conference, November 16-20. If you are a spiritual writer—or reader—this conference is for you. You’ll have the chance to listen to veteran writers speak, but they will also be available to answer your questions, and even meet one-on-one throughout the week. (The lectures will be available for three months after the conference, but you have live interactions the week of the conference itself.)

I’m going to be talking about writing about hard stuff. You know, topics like disability and privilege and race and even faith–all of these are topics we are told to avoid at the dinner table which also seem to be the topics I like to explore on the page. I’ll be considering: 

How do we craft narratives about the hard stuff of life in a way that welcomes readers and encourages thoughtfulness? 

How do we make particular experiences into stories that resonate with a broad audience?

 In a world of endless light content, short attention spans, and ceaseless opportunities to be entertained, how do we write stories that draw readers in and help them think and grow?

I would LOVE for you to join me for this conversation and experience and even sign up to meet one-on-one. 

The early bird price for registration ends on October 31. I hope to see you there!
