Please acknowledge that you will give real consideration to the following questions. We are a group of writers that are serious about establishing writing goals and actively working toward those goals and we are seeking more of the same.

What genres do you like? Who are your favorite writers?

I read a lot of spirituality/self-help non-fiction. I enjoy reading plays and biographies of creative people. In fiction, I enjoy contemporary literature, classic mysteries, thrillers, pop fiction, young adult literature. My favorite writers include Shakespeare, Alice Walker, James Baldwin, Dan Brown, Zora Neale Hurston, Agatha Christie, Faye Weldon and Stieg Larsson.

Have you chosen a particular genre? Format? Please elaborate: (I write short story horror, poety, romance novels, etc)

I have played with many genres in the past and my current focus is on the personal memoir and a full-length, one-person play.

If you could write your short bio on a book jacket, what would it say?

This writer, actor and educator, born and raised in Atlanta, GA, investigates and reflects on such disparate ideas as 20th Century nostalgia, pop culture, family, and the search for post-modern identity in a culture divided by race, class and gender politics.

We ask that you read and acknowledge that you understand RULES OF THE ROAD (Posted under 'pages'). Also, sign up here at http://penpaperwrite.com/writers to receive writing tips and news from PenPaperWrite.

Introduction

I'm an eclectic writer of short fiction, essays, poetry, monologues and children's plays. What else? I'm a native Atlanta, a third generations public teacher and I've lived in New York City and Los Angeles for much of my adult life.

What Christopher A. is saying about this Meetup Group

Very inspiring. As I get back from summer vacation, it may be hard to stay to the end, but I find great inspiration in the dialogue, the prompts and the company of fellow writers.
