Wood to Lead Workshop on Letters and Journals

Ralph Wood, a Wake Forest University religion professor, will present a writing workshop entitled “Letters and Journals” Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 7-9 p.m. in the Ring Theater.

The free seminar is part of a series of writing workshops on regional influence in the literary arts and is open to the community. The session will focus on the art of letter and journal writing. Participants are encouraged to bring examples of their own journal entries and letters to share.

Author of “The Comedy of Redemption: Christian Faith and Comic Vision in Four American Novelists,” Wood is currently editing a group of letters by Flannery O’Connor.

Named John Allen Easley Professor of Religion in 1991, he has taught at Wake Forest since 1971. He has received both of Wake Forest’s most prestigious teaching awards, the Reid-Doyle Prize for Excellence in Teaching and the Jon Reinhardt Award. He also is an editor-at-large for The Christian Century and a member of the editorial board for the Flannery O’Connor Bulletin.

The event is part of Wake Forest’s Year of the Arts, a yearlong celebration of the arts, including special performances, lectures and a symposium.
