Are you joining because: A) you're curious, B) you have an interest in writing, C) social interaction, D) you want to learn techniques, E) you want to obtain feedback on your work, or F) you're interested in marketing or publishing your work?

All of the above, but I'm intimidated by F, and I first need to finish something! (A couple of periodical publications to date.)

How would you describe what you write (i.e. fiction, memoir, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?

I'd like to motivate to return to my fictionalized memoir and start moving forward with it again. I need to start over. I've decided I want to use first person voice instead of a third person storytelling style. I write easily all the time but I am afraid of the writing that matters to me most. I'd like to bust through that fear and be encouraging to other writers too. Can't come tomorrow, but still hope I pass group inspection. My very first meetup plunge!


Hi, all - I've known since I was 12 that I'm a writer but I at times I'm stuck, like with the novel I started. Used to teach HS English. Had a fellowship w/ Nat'l Writing Project years ago. Being with writers who are writing would be good for me!
