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 Berkeleyemail@example.com.
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.

Bulwer-Lytton, Jack London
Dear CWC-BB Members,
Happy Jack London’s birthday! In the most recent edition of Write Angles, the calendar lists his birthday incorrectly. I wanted to make sure everyone knows that Jack London was born on January 12. Thank you, Linda Brown, for catching that error and setting us straight.
While I’ve got your attention…be sure to come to our next meeting on Sunday, January 20, the first of 2013. In addition to our featured speaker, David Mitroff, who will speak to us on leveraging technology, we’ll also hear from our own vice-president, Kymberlie Ingalls, who will read excerpts from her blog. Lucille Bellucci will announce the winners of our holiday luncheon writing exercise based on the Bulwer-Lytton contest for the best awful writing. And Lynne Fix will present Write Angles’s Monthly Writers’ Contest winner for December, Mary Luersen, with a mysterious fabulous prize.
And remember to bring money to buy a raffle ticket to support the Fifth Grade Story Contest! The prize table is covered with books and other wonderful items. But you won’t find out what they are unless you come to the meeting…
See you the Sunday after tomorrow,
President, CWC-Berkeley Branch

Announcements, From the President, Speakers, Workshops
Here is January’s Write Angles for your enjoyment. Note: although both the workshop and speaker flyers (pages 8 & 9) list the dates as being in 2012, both dates are actually in 2013. Sorry about that. We are actually advertising events that are happening in the future and not writing about the past!
