At Blue Ridge, everyone is settling in. The newbies are learning their way around campus. The veterans have reconnected with old friends and made new ones. Everything is in full swing. They'll be challenged this morning with a devotion and some time in worship.
So before we dive in, let's take a few moments to worship.
Put on your favorite worship CD, flip on the radio, crank up your iPod or . . . if you want to get in the full Blue Ridge spirit, check out Janet Roller's site. Janet Roller lead worship last year and is leading it again this year. She's got an amazing voice and a very sweet spirit. There are three songs on this link you could listen to as you . . .
Focus on Nonfiction.
Here's a list of of faculty members who teach/critique/represent nonfiction as well as those who focus on public speaking. As in yesterday's post, I've tried to provide links to all the websites associated with each person. If there's a link associated with both the name and the description, those are two different links - click on both! If you click on a link and it takes you to the Blue Ridge website, then you'll need to click on the 2011 faculty page and scroll down to their info because they included A LOT of links!
There are many nonfiction options that are very accessible, even to the brand new writer without experience or platform. (Remember, tomorrow we're talking about submitting and nonfiction may be just the place for that...)
