Preach — How the Bible Taught Me to Write [Emily Rapp Black]

This class analyzes the Bible as a literary document that can teach us important craft tools. We’ll discuss endings and beginnings; setting the stage and stakes; making your conflicts matter; the power of scene; working with plot and memory; and literary citizenship and the life as a writer as modeled by several key Biblical characters. Note: This is not a religious Bible study. We will approach this document from a nonreligious perspective, as a literary text that is alive, built over centuries by multiple authors, and not divinely inspired.
