Ruminate at the Festival of Faith & Writing

by Ruminate Magazine March 15, 2012

We are busy preparing for Calvin College's Festival of Faith & Writing next month--April 19-21st--in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The festival is only every two years, so we really look forward to it and love meeting so many of our readers and contributors.(Registration is still open until April 1st, if you are interested in attending.) This year, we will have a booth in the exhibition hall, and we'll be talking to old friends and meeting new writers. We'll have copies of the magazine for sale, of course, plus our awesome t-shirts, our limited edition poetry broadsides, and our new book bags. The Ruminate staff joining us for the weekend will be editor-in-chief Brianna Van Dyke, visual art editor Stefani Rossi, creative director and print designer Anne Pageau, and graphic design intern Abigail Mitchell. If you want to chat with one of us, send us an email and we can let you know the hours that each of us will be staffing the Ruminate table. We're really excited about a panel session we are co-hosting with Antler (more on these new friends later) on Saturday 12:45-1:45 with Scott Cairns, Marilyn McEntyre, and Walter Wangerin, Jr. The session will be on play and mystery with a special time to practice lectio divina. We'll also be hosting a chat session on Friday at 1:00 where you can meet some of the Ruminate crew and get some tips for submitting to literary magazines. Quite a few Ruminate contributors will also be attending the festival and speaking at the various sessions, including Scott Cairns, Susanna Childress, Marilyn McEntyre, Luci Shaw, Walter Wangerin, and Paul Willis. And, Li-Young Lee will be speaking at the festival and serving as the finalist judge for our upcoming poetry contest. You can see the full list of all the festival speakers here. Are you planning on attending the festival this year? Comment below and let us know so we can connect!
