     Thanks for being so welcoming. Quite a different style than the Scifi/Fantasy meetup critique group I attend monthly. How can you all do it once a WEEK! I'm impressed.

     Is the meeting Wednesday confirmed for my house? My address is 320 Lenox Ave, off Grand by Fairyland. I can have a space in my drive way for Alon, but otherwise, Grand Ave. meters go off at 6.

     I went to one meeting so far, and could tell WRITE away this group has talent, honesty and valuable feedback. A genuine support for each others success in getting our collective voices on paper. Looking forward to next meeting. Carry on & Keep Writing!

     Great! Even though I didn't share my own work, I already feel like I'm learning a lot from listening to other people's feedback. Very interesting to read people's pieces! Feeling more motivated to write, looking forward to future meetings.

     I'm really impressed with the writers and their seriousness. I a bit feel humbled, as I'm just beginning to think about writing a memoir.

     There wasn't enough time for people to really make thoughtful comments.

  • The Berkeley Writers Circle

     It is flexible so you can continue writing at your own pace and not feel as though you need to read at each session. But if you want to, you may always request a reading spot. 

    Barbara on Oct 25, 2010.

  • The Berkeley Writers Circle

     Everybody was friendly, and for me the works shared were unique, interresting, and invigorating for me as a relatively new writer. 

    Charles S. on Sep 19, 2009.

     To advance in your writing... to get good audience reaction from a very varied audience...

     If the group continues to find good speakers, this is a wonderful local resource. Don't know about the core groups yet.
