Search For Meaning
Authors

Author Network

  • The Search for Meaning Author Network is made up of over 300 authors-- featured in annual Festivals and highlighted year-round.

    Each year's Festival features 2+ keynotes and over 40 authors in session share on themes of the human search for meaning-- including issues of spirituality, faith, ethical work and social justice. The diverse group of guest authors, both men and women, represent a range of belief systems and faith traditions, including but not limited to: Christian (Catholic & every Protestant denomination, including non-denominational and Evangelical), Spiritual but not religious, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Unitarian Universalist, Mormon and Agnostic.

    For more information on joining the Author Network:
    Please email your book(s) and links, a brief bio, website / social media webpage links, and contact information (phone, email and address) to stm@seattleu.edu. We'll be in touch! Thank you.
