Why do you want to join the group? Please tell us something about yourself

I would like to talk with others about the writing life-not just writing, but editing, publishing, etc. And I would like to share my work with others for review and suggestions on how to strengthen it.

What writing experience have you had? (New writers are welcomed and encouraged to attend!)

Part of my job throughout my career was technical and business writing. After several decades of that I am now trying to work with other forms- short fiction, essays, poetry.

Are you currently working on any projects?

I am working on either a series of short stories or a novella about coming of age in the mid 1960s- cliche I know but a personal retrospective that was important to tackle before moving on to more contemporary and emotionally challenging themes of later life. I am also working on a series of essays about retirement. I am also keeping a journal of short poems that deal day to day personal experiences and observations.

Do you have skills that you would be willing to share with the group?

A willingness to share constructive and hopefully helpful observations.

Introduction

Now that I'm retired I am trying to transition from a career of technical/business writing to short fiction, poetry, and essays.
