2018 Raggant Fiction Festival

Often, as fallen creatures, we are too close to our own world to see it clearly. Reading good fiction enables us to step back a few paces and look at our world, and ourselves, through a few diferent lenses, gaining a clearler view in our knowledge of God and living a life glorifying to Him.

To this end, please join us for the third-annual Fiction Festival, where we explore and develop the relationship between Christians and Fiction. Our theme this year is Developing Character and Character Development.

We will also have a Children’s Track for ages 3-10. Children are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite literary character!
