We are a small writing group that gathers on Thursdays to drink cocktails, eat cheese, and offer ruthless critiques of each others’ masterpieces.
You are a writer who is serious about getting published with your novel/memoir/epic, controversial biography of Pippi Longstocking/etc. You must be committed to reading the material every week, attending all meetings and, failing that, turning in your thorough notes the next week.
Please no short form; we love poetry but this is a group for finishing long works.
Because we meet in each others homes, someone nearby and/or near BART would be preferred. But good writing is what counts the most.
Finally, a sense of humor is required. If double-entendres and TMIs make you feel all nasty jazz (hold up! Adventure Time reference!) you should probably look elsewhere.
In your email, please attach a five-page writing sample and tell us about yourself. It would be good to hear if you’ve had experience with writing groups, so we don’t have to worry that you cry when critiqued or, conversely, cackle and waggle your fingers in lieu of criticism. If we feel your writing is a good fit for the group, we’ll invite you to critique our work at an upcoming session as a test run.
Thanks for reading!
