Stone Court Writer-In-Residence, D.J. Thielke will read from her short stories on Sunday, December 14th at 3pm at The MOUNT, home of novelist Edith Wharton, in Lenox, MA. The event is free to the public, and generously supported by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, Berkshire Waldorf High School, Stockbridge Library Museum & Archives, and The Mount.
Thielke, originally from Houston, TX, was selected from a large pool of highly qualified applicants to be awarded the inaugural residency at the Stone Court Writer-In-Residence in Stockbridge, MA. As part of the residency, Thielke is teaching a creative writing elective to students at the Berkshire Waldorf High School. The Stone Court Writer-In Residence program offers two annual residencies, one that begins in September and the other in February. The program provides up-and-coming writers a sanctuary, with the freedom, time, and materials they need to fully immerse themselves in their work.
Thielke’s work has appeared in such journals as Arts and Letters, Indiana Review, Cincinnati Review, Southern Humanities Review, and the New Delta Review: Best of the Web. In addition, her plays have been produced at the Houston Fringe Festival and the Frenticore Fringe Festival. She currently serves as Assistant Editor of Narrative Magazine.
Berkshire Waldorf High School students will share their short stories written in Thielke’s creative writing elective. The public reading is Wednesday, December 10th at 7pm at the Berkshire Waldorf High School, 14 Pine Street, Stockbridge, MA.
