Beth J.



Sacramento, CA
Hometown: Plainfield, NJ

Organizer since:

January 21, 2011

What are the best days/times for you to meet and write?

I'm mostly available during the day, although I can steal away and write one night a week.

Have you ever been part of a writing group/workshop before?

Yes, I've been in multiple writing groups over the years, most of them positive experiences, but this group is different. Because it's led by a facilitator, it offers more safety (i.e. less chance for a strong personality to dominate the group.)

Are you currently doing any creative writing?

Yes, I lost my husband recently and writing has been an important part of my grief work. I am writing poetry, short fiction and memoir.

Do you prefer to drop-in to a group when you can or commit to participating for a set number of weeks?

I prefer an ongoing number of sessions. There's a sense of community that evolves in an ongoing group that is priceless.

What do you like to write?

I like the process of writing I like anything that lets me lose my self and move into a new reality.


I've always used writing as a way to know myself better and process my experience. I have a deep affection for poetry and a good story and it feeds me to be around other creative writers and artists.

What Beth J. is saying about this Meetup Group

Excellent place to support a writing habit. Warm and welcoming.
