The world is starving for stories, and the sense of hope and adventuring they bring us. But many stories today aren’t helpful, or are even harmful to readers. That’s why we need faith-inspired fiction writers! Dominic, founder of LegendFiction, explores the idea that every generation’s job is translating the Gospel into the tropes and themes and language of their time. Most importantly, we need to accept our own adventures, because the best novels come from the depths of our love for reality, with all its darkness and light.
- It was awesome! I kept getting good chills at some of your one-liners! – Max W
- I have felt immensely alone in what I’m trying to do as a writer, spiritually, and it’s amazing to find people who are nerds and feel the same, let me tell you. – Kathryn Z
