This meetup is all about storytelling based on real-life characters, settings and events. Writers read from a work-in-progress and receive helpful critique from empathetic peers, and everyone is encouraged to participate in "Show and Tell" in which we share a piece of published writing we like, or a book or other resource on the craft of writing.
At the March meetup we will also discuss Resurrecting the Champ by J.R. Moehringer at the LA Times. Participants are encouraged to to read it beforehand, so we can compare notes, and then learn what another published writer had to say on Harvard's Nieman Storyboard (don't look before the meetup! the idea is to do our own thinking first).

Writers interested in reading their work should contact Michael ahead of time. A free-will donation of $2 will be happily accepted to cover the room rental.
