Afternoon Activities

1:30 pm Songwriters' Ring - Clay Clarkson and Matthew Clark will lead the group in a collaborative songwriting session with the intention of completing a song by the end of the gathering. 

1:30 pm There and Backpack Again - If you saw Kevan Chandler's documentary last year, dodged his wheelchair in the hallway, or heard rumors about him getting carried around Europe in a backpack, come and hangout this year as he shares stories from his most recent adventure, backpacking through China.

1:30 pm Poetry Open Mic - Led by poets Chris & Jen Yokel, this is an opportunity for everyone to come and read something of your own, or just to come and listen to others.

1:30 pm Lectio Visio Workshop: Seeing God's Word at Godspeed (Matt Canlis) - Bored with the Bible? Having trouble hearing God's Word? In training Jeremiah to be a prophet, why was God's first question: "What do you see?" Come and learn how to read the Bible visually. Discover why Jesus invited his disciples to "come and see" the Word made flesh. This workshop is especially suited for Quiet-Time drop-outs, or anyone feeling guilty about their devotional life.

3:30 pm Psalms of Play Workshop (Jennifer Trafton) - No writing talent required. Come and have fun playing with words and celebrate the magic of language.

3:30 pm Rabbit Trails: A 4-Panel Comic Workshop - The concept. The setup. The payoff. Comic strips use visual storytelling to create characters, establish plot, and deliver an idea - all within four panels. Join cartoonist Jonny Jimison for a discussion of his webcomic process and a live drawing presentation - then join the fun and build your own comic strip.

3:30 pm The Membership: A Wendell Berry Podcast (John Pattison, Tim Wasem, Jason Hardy) - Join us for the recording of the inaugural episode of a new podcast inspired by the life and work of Kentucky farmer, writer, and activist Wendell Berry. We’ll hear from a variety of artists and practitioners who have been inspired and challenged by Berry’s poetry, fiction, and essays.
