Meet professional writers. Share works in progress and tricks of the trade

  • November 30 · 6:30 PM
  • Colonial Club Clubhouse

Professional writers ONLY meetup. A meetup group for working, professional writers. NO wannabees or aspiring writers.

Bring that essay, article, book chapter you’ve been working on that just isn’t coming together and get feedback from colleagues. Fiction or non-fiction writers welcome.

You MUST be (or have been) published—i.e. you got paid for your work. Non-literary writing is OK--so if you're in advertising or PR but working on a book or article for publication please apply. If your only book/s is self-published that is NOT a criteria for admission unless you are also a professional writer.

Don’t forget to bring on the funny. Snark is a plus. If you can make us laugh we may lower the bar for acceptance.

Your organizer, Erica Manfred, has been a freelance writer for 30 years. Her articles and humorous essays have appeared in the New York Times,,, Village Voice, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, Healthline, Purple Clover and many other on and offline pubs. She is a columnist at and the author of three non fiction books from major publishers, and one self published novel. She’s a member of ASJA (American Society of Journalists and Authors).
