Rolling Stone Editor/Writer Starting Writing Group


I’m looking for fiction writers interested in a weekly writing group that will meet at a café in Oakland. Need help getting your novel finished? Want a supportive group to hear your words and provide constructive feedback? Want to participate in conversation with other writers about writing? Want to learn techniques that will help you improve your writing? I was a staff writer/editor at Rolling Stone for a decade, contributed non-fiction to Esquire, downbeat, Details, Vibe, New Musical Express, Wired, New West, New Times and numerous other publications. I was in the Dangerous Writers group in Portland for several years where I work-shopped my first novel, which I’m currently revising. If you’ve got a novel you’ve completed or nearly completed a draft of, or have been writing short stories for a number of years, this could be the writing group for you. Please email me a chapter of your novel, or a short story you're proud of. The group will meet for two hours, once a week. What's most important is that you are committed to writing, and that you write on a daily basis. Writers of genre fiction (mystery, private eye, science-fictions, etc.) need not apply. $20.00 a week/no charge for the first session.If $20 is a problem, talk to me about it.
