This past June and July, Los Angeles-based writer Chante Griffin and Michael Stalcup led two rounds of Spirit & Scribe, a four-week online workshop at the intersection of spiritual  formation and writing craft. We had a wonderful time getting to interact with over forty  writers from the United States, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United Kingdom. The goal was to help people connect their relationship with God to their work as a writer.

We learned about Purpose (motivations for writing), Process (cultivating an idea), Prayer (writing with the Spirit), and Parable (forming the imagination). The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and Chante and I hope to offer the course again in a few months when we have time. Anyone interested can simply email me ( and I will let them be the first to know when we offer the course again.
