What we're about

Writing is not always about sitting alone with a pen or word processor and getting words on paper or onscreen. Writing is also about sharing ideas, about learning, and about honing our skills. I am starting this salon as a venue for writers in the East Bay to support each other. You can be a beginner or a published writer, simply bring your stories along with a desire to continue learning, no matter what your level of accomplishment.

Upcoming events (5+)

Let's get together, introduce ourselves, and start discussing our stories.

Before I give too many details, I'd like to see who shows up. If there is enough interest, we can schedule an additional meeting on a different day.

Come prepared to share some of your work.

This is a flexible venue for people to discuss their works-in-progress and share tips. You are welcome to share short stories, essays, novels, screen and stage plays, poetry, or any other form of writing. With small groups we can share up to twelve pages, and with larger groups we can limit sharing and discussion time as needed.
