A few of us (well, two) aspiring science fiction/fantasy writers were looking for a serious critique and write-sharing group to join. We thought, hey, lots of people in Berkeley must love sci-fi...we just have to find them and get them in a cafe. The group is open to anyone who is writing in the genre or who enjoys it enough to read other people's writing and provide serious and supportive critique. What kind of writing? Screenplays, novels, short stories, YA...you name it. We share our writing online before the meeting, so the meeting itself is straight-up discussion. This allows us to review larger pieces of work in every meeting, up to chapter-length pieces. If you're interested, contact Beth (the organizer) and send what you're working on now.

We have "regular" meetings (for short story or chapter-length work) roughly every five weeks.
We also added additional special meetings focused on reading full novels, since several of our members already have completed novels and it's better to read them all at once.

Work is submitted to the organizer two weeks (at least) before the meeting to be shared with those who have RSVP'd. Full details can be found on our "Some things you should know" page, conveniently linked here.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
