East Bay Write Easy
Writing Group for Teachers (Open to the Public)
Mudraker’s Cafe 4:00-6:00 p.m.2801 Telegraph Ave at Stuart in Berkeley, CA
Join us to write, share, chat, eat, drink and warm ourselves with words and with other teachers and writers. We’ll offer prompts, but you are always free to write what you want and need to write. We use the Amherst Writers and Artists response guidelines to give feedback to our fresh, unedited work.
Bring your pen, your computer, a prompt to share and get your writing on!
Writing is made of voices. Our single voices may seem to be lost in the bitter wind. But if we listen hard enough we can hear hundreds of other voices trying to sing like us. Like threads weaving a cloth. Like the constellation patterns we draw to connect stars. Voices who have never dared sing before.
