BGU students and faculty have always had a unique connection to the city. Beyond formal curriculum and research, practitioners abound among us. The collective experience and expertise in urban ministry have been expressed in a multitude of theses and dissertations. Dr. Gea Gort explains, in a recent interview with Dr. Larry Peabody, the inner conviction that led her to transform her dissertation into a publishable book. View the interview here:
With a goal to encourage a new generation of leaders to fully engage their cities, BGU is looking for potential authors who are interested in forming a Writer’s Community.
The community will:
- Act as a source of mutual encouragement and accountability
- Offer expert advice from current BGU authors
- Suggest practical resources for writing techniques
- Serve as a natural connection for mentorship
- Aid participants in the publishing process by suggesting a publisher or self-publishing option
- Make authors aware of common requirements and/or specific publisher prerequisites
- Help participants discover a variety of writing venues (i.e. blogs, articles for various journals or magazines, etc.)
- Inform writers of the differences between academic writing and authoring a book
Anyone affiliated with BGU who has a passion to write is asked to complete a short survey at
LINK . Once the interest level is has been determined, we will begin a quarterly conference call.
