We are about Creative Writing: fiction, poetry, essays, screenwriting.
No charge. Open invitation to join at meetup.com/CreativeWritersBerkeley.
At 7:00 p.m., we'll begin with the organizer presenting brief craft examples in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and plays from the current edition of Janet Burroway's "Imaginative Writing: Elements of the Craft."
At 7:30, we'll begin writing for 60 minutes and at 8:30, we'll share (optional) excerpts from work-in-progress.
Organizer: A recent MFA in Creative Writing, I've published comic-ironic stories in literary magazines such as San Francisco's ZYZZYVA, Berkeley Fiction Review, Ishmael Reed's Konch. Current projects: a novel "Speak Up, Roma" and my blog <EditingCraft.com>. I started teaching myself creative writing by studying Janet Burroway's "Imaginative Writing," first edition, and writing a successful application story for a local MFA program. This study prepared me to make better-informed comments in the MFA workshops and later in consultations with professional editors. See my book-review of the fourth edition, on my blog and on amazon.com.
