Marilyn Stewart is an award-winning feature writer whose articles have appeared in secular and faith-based venues.
As a long-time contributing writer and freelance columnist for The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, she learned the power of story to hold and keep a reader’s attention.
Since joining the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary public relations office staff in 2015 as assistant director for news and information, Marilyn has been presented with three awards from the Baptist Communicators Association. This year’s award—the Leonard Holloway Award for Exceptional Achievement in Feature Writing—was the grand prize award in the feature writing category and was awarded for an article she wrote in NOBTS’ Vision magazine.
In other writing, Marilyn has contributed to a soon-to-be-released LifeWay apologetics Bible for children, as well as two devotional books, three anthologies and numerous academic writings for a noted apologetics ministry.
Prior to the release of the 2010 Disney movie Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Marilyn’s article “Reepicheep: Signpost to God” was one of five articles featured on a special webpage that ran for six weeks at CBN.com, a website that receives one million hits per day.
