Celebrating Human Dignity Through Art

Last year, our friends at Rehumanize International launched Create|Encounter, an art and creative writing contest for works that explore life-related themes and elevate the inherent value of every human being. Winners were exhibited at the October Life/Peace/Justice Conference in Pittsburgh.

Rehumanize International just put all of the winning pieces and honorable mentions online, and they are definitely worth your time. Bias alert: an excerpt from my screenplay, Only Human, is included (or you can get the pdf version here). But don't limit yourself to that! There are many works to explore, including some truly beautiful poetry.

In more good news, Create|Encounter is officially coming back in 2018! Get those creative juices flowing, because the call for submissions will open on May 1, just three weeks from today.

And finally, the dates for the 2018 Life/Peace/Justice conference have been announced. It will take place from Friday, October 12 to Sunday, October 14, again in Pittsburgh. Save the date now, and tickets will go on sale in June.

One of my personal favorites, by Maria Oswalt.
