Writers-helping-writers Salon meets the third Monday of each month from 7 to 9 PM at HQ Gallery, 333 First Street in Benicia
To attend please RSVP to email@example.com
Since September, writers have been meeting, talking about their needs, and reading pieces they’ve written for comments and critique. While some of this writing has been in response to prompts, others have brought something they are currently working on.
Publishing is such a large issue! We’re attacking it in bits and pieces. Three people with considerable experience have shared what has happened to them in the process of being published. One woman who had her book published through a company she paid to publish it, brought the book and advised us not to use that company. The group will likely close once we have 6-8 regular members. Another group may start. The cost is $10 per session for nonmembers, or with a $40 annual membership, the sessions are free.
The Memoir Writing Group
has been meeting for over a year.
The group reads and offers suggestions and criticisms of each other’s work. Meets the first and third Fridays of each month from 10 am to noon. Membership is limited. To inquire about attending please write to to firstname.lastname@example.org
