I’m glad to host conversations or speak to groups, both large and small, about the mystics, deeper community, hospitality, vulnerability, the craft of writing, and being misfits in the church. I’m able to do conferences, readings, classroom discussions, university talks and more.

If you would like to contact me about coming to your event, university, or church, or to do a podcast or interview, feel free to email me at christiananoelwrites@gmail.com.
