The in-house writing staff has been part of the Short Stack Story Time since before the plan to open the doors to amateur/anonymous writers came to fruition.
Inspired by the likes of Walt Whitman and William Shakespeare, Elle began writing poetry and short stories at 10 years old. She graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2010 with her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature with a focus on Medieval Literature. Today, she finds her writing inspiration from her life as a wife, from her dogs, and from those around her.
Inspired and taught by her mother, Theatre Anon learned to read at age 3. Thanks to mom, Theatre Anon has continued her passion for literature throughout the years. Theatre Anon first started writing poetry and fictional short stories in high school and later had a poem published in an Alaskan magazine for children. Though preferring to write fiction, Theatre Anon enjoys sharing critiques on movies, television, and theatrical performances. At this point in life, Theatre Anon gets inspiration from everything, ranging from shows watched and college experiences.
