Writers, both experienced and beginning, are invited to this retreat.
Participants will experience the landscape of granite rock, sand plain, woodland and salt lake; listen for God in silence and birdsong and breezes; and search for the words to communicate beauty, transcendence, truth, struggle and hope.
Gathering and mentoring will be the Revd Dr Elizabeth J Smith. Now based in Kalgoorlie, Elizabeth is one of Australia’s foremost writers of liturgical and hymn texts.
Her ‘Goldfields God-Talk’ column in the Anglican Messenger magazine of the Diocese of Perth offers accessible theology and spiritual writing for the 21st century.
