The Writers Cafe is on hiatus.

For the time being I won't be considering new writers.

 

The group is currently full, however if you are interested, join up and send me an email. I'll contact you and give you an email address where you can send a writing sample -- either a chapter of your novel or a short story. If what you're doing is in sync with the group I'll put you on the waiting list and let you know where things are at with the group.

The current group is excellent. All of the writers are making great progress on their projects and the comments made when a writer reads have been supportive and insightful.

I’m looking for fiction writers interested in a weekly writing group that meets  in Oakland. Need help getting your novel finished? Want a supportive group to hear your words and provide constructive feedback? Want to participate in conversation with other writers about writing? Want to learn techniques that will help you improve your writing? I was a staff writer/editor at Rolling Stone for a decade, contributed non-fiction to Esquire, downbeat, Details, Vibe, New Musical Express, Wired, New West, New Times and numerous other publications. I was in the Dangerous Writers group in Portland for several years where I work-shopped my first novel, which I’m currently revising.

If you’ve got a novel you’ve completed or nearly completed a draft of, or have been writing short stories, this could be the writing group for you. The group meets for two hours every Thursday night from 7:15 p.m. until 9:15 p.m. What's most important is that you are committed to writing, and that you write on a daily basis. Writers of genre fiction (mystery, private eye, science-fictions, etc.) need not apply. $20.00 a week/no charge for the first session. If $20 is a problem talk to me about it.

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.
