Soup’s On! Callahan, Evolving, & Stock

June 30, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Celebrate the return of Soup’s On! with us at Deep Vellum Books, hosted by The Writer’s Garret’s own Emmy Piercy. This season: Stone Soup attendees Trish Callahan and Cynthia Stock and Stone Soup Poetry leader Reverie Evolving!

Soup’s On! is a quarterly series that serves two purposes: to showcase the incredible poets and writers we have in attendance at our Stone Soup Peer Critique Groups and to put those writers in touch with both an audience and other writers in their community. Whether you’re a new writer or an old pro, a sci-fi author or a poet, we want you to be a part of it. Come out and mingle, enjoy some coffee or a beer from Deep Vellum’s shop, and check out our Stone Soupers in one of Dallas’s vibrant literary venues in the heart of Deep Ellum!

This event is free and open to the public.

Trish Callahan has been writing fiction and poetry since she was in elementary school. She writes to entertain herself and others. Trish is currently editing a witty, tongue-in cheek vampire novel where she delights the members of her writing group with her wry sense of humor. She enjoys young adult fiction and all things vampire and zombie – the more ridiculous, the better. Trish received her Bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies from the University of California Santa Cruz and her Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. She currently works at Catholic Charities helping evacuees from Hurricane Harvey build new lives in Dallas.



Reverie Evolving is a poet who believes storytelling is the strongest link we humans have and relishes in the beauty of ordinary moments. She was born and raised in Connecticut, and despite living in Dallas for the past 15 years, still yearns for the decisiveness of four distinct seasons. Reverie earned her B.A. in English Arts from Hampton University, and her M.Ed. from The University of Phoenix.  By day, she teaches writing to a group of angelic middle school children, who often inspire her creativity and by night can be found howling at the moon with the pack of coyotes who adopted her as an adult when she isn’t writing or planning writing lessons.



Cynthia Stock has always written stories. She retired last October after forty-five years of Critical Care Nursing. At The Writer’s Garret, she met Briget Boland, then Foley, who mentored her in her first novel, The Final Harvest of Judah Woodbine (available on Amazon). She is currently working on a nursing memoir, So, You Want to Be a Nurse. Her work has appeared in Memoryhouse Magazine, You&Me Magazine, Pulse: Voices from the Heart of Medicine, and The American Journal of Nursing. Her submission to Memoir Magazine‘s #Metoo contest was deemed a notable essay and was subsequently picked up by Shark Reef Magazine for its July issue. She likes to tell people she is just a little old lady from Garland who is finally living her dream writing full-time.
