Just landed on this blog?

Thinking of entering this competition? Fantastic!

The theme of this competition is Christian Writing in a Digital Age (#DigiFaith).

Entrants should write a blog post reflecting on the theme of no more than 450 words. Each post should include something to do with writing, something to do with faith and something to do with the digital age.

You’ll need to check out our Terms and Conditions for details of how to enter.

There are also some great prizes up for grabs – click here for the full list.

Want inspiration? Here’s some ideas we compiled earlier, which might get you thinking…

  • how we express ourselves in a Christ-like way online
  • the opportunities and drawbacks in a digital world for spreading the good news by writing
  • is there a ‘Christian ethic’ of writing – and how does this apply to blogging, tweeting, facebooking etc?
  • what style of writing is tweeting and facebooking? How do we apply the writers’ craft to this – or do we?
  • what makes a good writer? How is this different (if it is different) from writing prior to the digital age?
  • what about ‘text’ and ‘tweet’ speak? Do we love it or hate it? Digital jargon – does it obscure our meaning?
  • what is a ‘Christian’ writer? Is it someone who writes Christian content? Or someone who has a Christian faith and is also a writer? Do we have a responsibility to embody our faith in an age where little remains hidden?
