The Promise of Jesse Woods Virtual Book Club for Writers

A good writer is a good reader first.

But reading a stack of good books isn’t enough. If we want to grow, we need to analyze the stories with our writing hats on!

Enter the 2020 Story Embers Book Club for Writers

The Promise of Jesse Woods  won the 2017 Christianity Today  Book Award of Merit in the fiction category and is a model example of Christian fiction.

We want to read through the book together as a Story Embers community, discuss it on a weekly basis to pull out relevant themes from it, and conclude with a week-long article series where our staffers unpack the different ways we can learn from it as storytellers!

Many of us will be stuck at home due to coronavirus social distancing over the next several weeks. So let’s use this time as an opportunity to expand our skills as storytellers by studying a great book!

 

How the Story Embers Book Club Works

1. Get a copy of the book (physical or digital) through Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or your favorite bookseller before April 6th.

2. Set up a forum account so you can participate in our weekly book discussions.

3. From April 6th through May 20th, read the book by following the schedule we provide.

4. Every Monday, we’ll post a new writing-related discussion question on the forum. Share your perspective with fellow storytellers and learn lessons from the book’s exceptional qualities!

5. Conclude the book study with a three-part article series we’ll run on our blog starting May 21st. Each installment will explain the insights we think writers can glean from the book.
