Creative Nonfiction Writers

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). Here's the URL: http://articles.latimes.com/print/1997-05-04/magazine/tm-55180_1_bob-satterfield

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.

    Thank you for all for the wonderful and useful feedback this time out about my piece. I'm still receiving emails from many of you about it!

    This is a wonderfully committed, fun and generous group. Glad to be a part of it.

    Seems life has conspired thus far to prevent my on going participation. I hope to be free this coming session.
