Established writers group (multi-gender / multicultural) looking for 2 to 3 new members. Meets in Elmwood, Berkeley. Novels, short stories, memoirs welcome. Very supportive group, good rapport, great ambience. Format: No reading during meetings. We submit excerpts of our work (3 submissions of up to 5,000 words) in advance and critique them during the meetings (similar to the format at Squaw Valley workshops). We have no facilitator. In addition to critiques, we discuss networking, talking about craft, marketing, writers conferences, etc. Our membership run the gamut from beginners to published novelists to writers with agents shopping their work. The only thing we ask is that you are serious about the craft and make an attempt to regularly attend the meetings. We meet every other Thursday, 7 - 9 pm at a cafe on College Avenue. Contact Enrico at 482-3038 or via e-mail at: email@example.com; or Jeremy at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask for a writing sample in advance of the first meeting.
