Title of any creative-writing craft book you've read?

I started this no-fee meetup in December 2013. As of Dec 29, 2015, we've met 62 times. Since 2006, I have posted reviews of many creative-writing books on amazon. The most recent is K M Weiland's STRUCTURING YOUR NOVEL WORKBOOK.

Have you read any of the following? Janet Burroway's IMAGINATIVE WRITING, fourth edition; Tom Bailey, ed., ON WRITING SHORT STORIES, second edition; Sarah Stone & Ron Nyren's DEEPENING FICTION? (See my amazon-reviews.)

All four.

Your experience in creative writing: any workshops you took -- when and where? Publications, if any? (Do not list publications on "create space" etc.)

MFA in Creative Writing from Mills College. Short stories published in literary magazines such as ZYZZYVA, The Berkeley Fiction Review, and Ishmael Reed's Konch.

What is your current writing project?

A novel "Five Rivers," and humorous flash fictions. I am also the organizer of the San Francisco Bay Area Comedy Writers meetup that meets concurrently with CreativeWritersBerkeley.


A recent MFA in Creative Writing, I've published humorous stories in ZYZZYVA, The Berkeley Fiction Review, Konch. ( Earlier I earned a PhD in Psychology at Stanford.)
