Please acknowledge that you will give real consideration to the following questions. We are a group of writers that are serious about establishing writing goals and actively working toward those goals and we are seeking more of the same.

No answer yet

What genres do you like? Who are your favorite writers?

I read fiction, philosophy and poetry. My favorite writers are John Irving, Jim Harrison and Hemingway for their subtle lessons delivered by wonderful stories, Dostoevsky for his intense characters and Walt Whitman and Pablo Neruda for their joy and passion for life. And Dickens was the one that hooked me on literature.

Have you chosen a particular format? Novel, Short story, poetry, etc. Please elaborate.

I find that poetry and short stories seem to suit my often limited attention span.

If you could write your short bio on a book jacket , what would it say?

I've no idea. Don't publishers pay someone else for that?

We ask that you read and acknowledge that you understand RULES OF THE ROAD (Posted under 'pages'). Also, for writing tips, tools,and upcoming webinar news, SIGN UP at PenPaperWrite here -



I have been reading and writing poetry and prose since I was a teen. Lately I’ve become obsessed with it. I fully express myself only in writing and am often surprised by what I find within. Atlanta native but have lived other spots around the U.S.

What Michael B. is saying about this Meetup Group

A bit of a different group than my last one. I rather like the variety of personalities.
