Abby is available for a variety of speaking engagements and workshops. Since she does have Chronic Migraine, she has to be selective about in-person engagements and workshops. Even if she can’t be there in person, she would still love to try to work something out, like a Skype call!

Examples of topics:

  • Coping with Disability
  • Writing with disability
  • Creative Prayer
  • Listening as Art and Prayer (hands on)
  • Creative-Cross Training
  • Suffering and Art
  • What does it mean to Christian and still have pain
  • Any aspect of writing (world building, criticism, how to keep writing despite life circumstances, working with a small press, writing in the real world, etc.)
    hands-on art workshops
