(In person only; taught by Liz Harlan-Ferlo) Explore the ways in which writers across traditions have used language to describe God and their experiences of the divine. Using these models and writing exercises, we will generate our own poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Classes will include reading and discussion as well as time to write and share out. Open to writers of all levels.

She combines her study of multiple faith narratives with talents for teaching and public speaking, bringing humility and humor to theology, and curiosity to exploring the presence of the sacred.

Educated in public and religious institutions, she graduated from Oberlin College, and earned an MFA at the University of Oregon, during which time she was awarded both a Kidd Workshops Fellowship and a Humanities Center Residency.
