My therapist told me to go to meetups.com
At this point it doesn't really matter to me except that there seem to be an inordinate number of writing groups on Tuesday nights and few at any other times. Also, I have a slight preference toward evening meetings.
I mostly write comedic/analytical non-fiction and screenplays. I also write songs, stand-up comedy bits, and some fiction. I try to focus on balancing humor and darkness, also philosophy and anti-philosophy. In the past year I have written two feature length films, two pilots, five shorts, several treatments, an album to be recorded early next year, countless pages of narrative non-fiction, a blog goodbyebooze.blogspot.com, and a about a half hour of stand-up material.
I have a bachelor's in creative writing from Hampshire College ('06). After graduating I spent a few years as a line cook in various cities until I took up writing again about a year ago. I am also a multi-instrumentalist and sometimes-comedian.
