Welcome to Perspectives off the Page,

Here you'll find my analysis of great stories, an overview of the history and mechanics of great writing, and discussions on all things theology, media, and culture.

Whether you're a student of writing, a seasoned storyteller, or just someone in search of the truth, inspiration, or a well-spoken word and well-written story to remind you that you are created for a purpose ... keep reading and keep writing because there's more to your story than meets the eye.

ABOUT JOEL

IT'S JOEL (BLUE SHIRT).png

I am as much of a storyteller as I am a student of literature, cinema, theology, and history.  As a freelance writer, professor, and novelist, I am committed to seeking the truth, pursuing excellence, and helping young writers develop their craft, find their purpose, and encounter the beauty and grace of their Creator. As someone who's spent far too much time in the deserts of despair, frustration, and terrible first drafts, I understand just how important inspiration, encouragement, and persistence really are. Sometimes, we all just need a life compass or creative push help us find our way or get us back on track. That is what I hope to share.
