Christian Fiction with a Twist: The Call to Write Outside the Box with Rick Higginson
Rick DEFINITELY writes outside the box. He could never be accused of jumping on the current literary bandwagon. Instead, he gets out his tools and builds a whole new wagon for his very different band. His session on writing outside the box is a must for anyone who has found their current bandwagon is stuck in a rut.
For many years, Christian fiction has found itself defined by cautious publishers and bookstores, and the result has been restrictive guidelines on what is acceptable. However, with the current opportunities for Christian writers, we have the ability to listen first to our individual calling and to write the stories God gives us.
Rick’s session will discuss how we can Biblically step outside the traditional restrictions to present characters and stories that help our readers think about doctrinal and ethical issues and/or to offer spiritual exhortation and encouragement. Potential pitfalls and objections will also be discussed, and how we can guard against taking our liberty too far.
