    I'm not going to make it this time, but I'm going to try for next week! Hopefully I'll have Burroway's book by then too. Have fun tonight :)

    I started writing fiction and poems in 2006 by doing the exercises in Janet Burroway's "IMAGINATIVE WRITING, first edition."

    Studying many other creative-writing craft books prepared me for better-informed participation in MFA workshops and for consultations with professional editors.

    For fuller participation in CreativeWritersBerkeley meetups, please bring a copy of the fourth edition of the Burroway book. (I have just ordered my copy of the fourth edition from amazon.com -- to be delivered on 10 February.)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
