Course Philosophy

When we write what is good, beautiful, and true, we honor God and the gift He gave us, and we serve people in a way that glorifies Him. Writers should strive to be faithful stewards of their writing gift and seek to continually grow in theological, craft, and creative precision and excellence.

With that end in mind, we’ve set up Writer Development Foundations to maximize the online learning experience, while still allowing for a go-at-your-own-pace approach.

We believe cross-training makes the best writers. Through learning about and practicing various writing styles, writers learn the skills needed to grow in their preferred craft genres.

How You’ll Grow:

  • Students will understand their primary identity as a child of God and their writer identity as both secondary and subject to the primary identity
  • Students will have grown in love for God, the writing craft, and creativity
  • Students will have a basic understanding of writing craft and a framework for growth
  • Students will value writing community and feedback as an important and healthy part of growth
  • Students will have tried various forms of writing and be able to identify strengths and weaknesses
  • Students will have the tools and knowledge to create a personal plan for all future writing projects, as well as a plan for community next steps
