From the President, Write Angles
March issue, Write Angles
This issue has enough reading material to last you through the month! The March issue of Write Angles has the results of the member survey, a preview of our critique group forum, a member profile, contest news, a book review, a map of CWC branches statewide, bios of Central Board officers, creative personal narratives submitted by readers, one author’s writing journey, and more.
I’m also attaching the latest member survey for those of you who didn’t get a chance to fill one out already. Please take a few minutes to give feedback and send it back to me at Berkeleyfirstname.lastname@example.org.
And I hope to see you at both of our March events—the critique group forum at our regular meeting spot in the basement of the Oakland main library at 2:00 on Sunday, March 16, and a social gathering at the Albatross in Berkeley at 5:00 on Friday, March 28.

From the President
Hey, all you CWC folks!
This Sunday the Berkeley Branch proudly presents British-born author Mary-Rose Hayes, who has written nine novels, including the best-seller Amethyst, two political thrillers coauthored with
Senator Barbara Boxer, and her latest, What She Had to Do.
Here’s the schedule for Sunday’s meeting:
1:00 p.m. Library doors open, Marketing Group meets, Meeting Setup
2:00 p.m. Refreshments & Networking
2:30 p.m. Business & Announcements
2:45 p.m. CWC-BB Member Reading
3:00 p.m. Featured Speaker – Mary-Rose Hayes
As always, the meeting will be in the Bradley C. Walters Community Room in the basement of Oakland Library’s main branch (125 14th St.) Light refreshments will be served. Entrance also on Madison between 13th and 14th Streets.
And speaking of refreshments…come swig a pint of beer, eat some popcorn, play a board game, and maybe even throw a few darts with (not at!) other writers at the Albatross Pub (1822 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley). We’ll gather in the back at 5:00 on Friday, March 28. It’s a no-host, cash-only purely social event that promises to be lots of fun! Bring your spouses, friends, family members (21 and over), agents, even casual acquaintances. All are welcome.
