Special Event: Writing Workshop

Page 158 Books and writer Suzanne Beaumont are thrilled to offer a writer's workshop.

If you are attending the Writing Workshop and you have work you'd like to share for feedback, please email the workshop (page158writingworkshop@gmail.com) and we will respond with instructions on how to share. 

This month's micro craft talk will be offered by Apple Plotnick Jannotta. Apple is a Virginia-born short story writer, and realistic fiction author. Her current Washington State Artist's Trust literary grant-winning work, The Market, is a commercial dystopian fiction adventure novel seeking representation. She has been published in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine and won an ACLU award for her poetry. She is a graduate of Kenyon College, and holds a Merited Master’s degree in International Security from the University of Birmingham, UK. A CIA recruit, she is known for weaving economics and geopolitics into her morality-based fiction. Apple writes from Wake Forest, NC. Reach her at applewrites@live.com or booksbyapple.com

Everyone has a story to tell. Have you ever wanted to write but didn't know how to start? Or are you a writer who wants their voice heard among other writers, and to listen to the voices of others? Are you looking for a community of diverse, respectful, supportive and creative people?  Then we are your people. Come join us! We want to provide a safe space to share ideas and help spark the next chapter in your story. Bring something you are working on, or just come to write. We will sharpen our writing skills and wake up our imaginations through writing practice to prompts. We will also provide the opportunity to share your work-in-progress and dive deeply into craft and explore what’s working. 

Cost of the workshop is $5, payable directly to the instructor.

Suzanne Beaumont is a writer. She has recently stepped away from a corporate career telling stories through code, architecture, and innovation. She is a long-time student of Natalie Goldberg’s and has recently begun studying with Katie Arnold. She is also currently studying with Clark Strand (haiku) and Suzanne Tyrpak (haibun). She is working on her first novel. Or maybe it’s a short story. Possibly an essay. Or a chap book. Some days, flash fiction. Time will tell! She has published works of poetry in The Wake Forest Review, Clark Strand’s, “Seeds from a Birch Tree”, and the California Urban Forestry Haiku Project. Suzanne believes that we all have a story to tell, and is eager to join with the community of writers here in Wake Forest.
