Welcome to the North Berkeley Writers’ pages. We are an informal group of writers of fiction and nonfiction narrative who share, discuss, and mentor each other’s works in progress and other works we may want to receive feedback on.
Each member-author has their own pages on this site, which other members and visitors to the blog can access by clicking the author’s name in the sidebar on the right. You activate your Author link here by posting your first piece of writing. If you already have a website of your own, you can easily add it as a link.
If you’d like to join us and post your writing informally, join our Readers/ Critique group, or both, send your request and your email address to: email@example.com. (We do not give your email to anyone else.) You will receive an email that contains your secure “Invitation” which has a link that takes you to the blog sign-up, and then to your own control center “dashboard.”
Lots of useful information pages are accessible without membership, listed in the sidebar and top-of-page menu, such as “Tools and Inspiration.” You’ll find good how-to books &classes, articles and techniques that some of our members have found especially valuable, either as inspiration or as practical nuts-and-bolts advice for more effective writing.
