Table Rock Writers Workshop


Wordkeepers events take place at the Ashe County Arts Council in West Jefferson (303 W. School Street).  Creating an opportunity for area writers to share their work via public readings, three area writers, Julie Townsend, Scot Pope and Chris Arvidson, created Wordkeepers in 2010.

Each salon features writers reading their latest works in five-minute open microphone time slots.

Refreshments are provided.  Writers interested in reading from their work should email Chris Arvidson at christinearvidson@mac.com to secure their first-come, first-served spot on the bill, and to receive guidelines for reading.

The next Wordkeepers will take place on August 16.  Hope to see you there!  Mark your calendars for these future Wordkeepers dates:  August 16, October 18, December 20, February 21, April 18 and June 20.  Keep writing!
