In Their Own Words

Calvin Center for Faith and Writing

The new Calvin Center for Faith and Writing has students at the heart of its mission. Opportunities abound for avid readers, keen writers, and anyone interested in how literature helps us examine the deepest truths. The CCFW seeks to be a leader in preparing people for work in publishing, so students are invited to participate in ongoing conversations and hands-on workshops with writers, editors and other publishing professionals. In addition, each year the CCFW offers four competitively awarded student fellowships—student fellows gain valuable experience by participating in all activities of the CCFW, including assisting with book and media production and helping with the acclaimed Festival of Faith and Writing. There’s a place for you—join us!
