Speaker Spotlight: Carol Baldwin’s “Strangers in a Strange Land”
There are no easy answers. But together—in Carol Baldwin’s workshop “Strangers in a Strange Land”—we will examine how we are strangers, what this strange land is, what choices are open to us, and ways in which we can integrate our faith into our writing. A worksheet will be provided to stimulate thought and discussion.
Since Carol was a child, she has loved reading and has maintained a journal off and on for more than thirty years. Her book Teaching the Story: Fiction Writing in Grades 4–8 (Maupin House, 2007) reflects these twin passions of reading and writing. As she suggests, “If you want to write, read!” Carol co-publishes the Talking Story newsletter with Joyce Hostetter, and she is a judge for the fiction contests sponsored by the Center for Writing Excellence.
