This article explores the philosophical, pedagogical and practical challenges encountered in constructing an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines insights from the worlds of theology and creative writing. Issues raised include the similarities and differences of the disciplines, the vulnerability required of students and teachers and whether creativity can be taught. The topic is explored through life writing, autoethnography and constructive narrative theology.
