Write this Summer!
Summertime… may the writing be easy! While The California Writers Club is on break for the summer, I hope you will keep writing. We writers have things to say, words to wrangle, and a world full of plot twists in need of happy endings.
Hello, I’m Kristen Caven, the new president of the Berkeley Branch.
I have been a member for 11 years, and fondly remember our “Captain,” AL Levenson, who “discovered” my design business, Cowgirl Creative, and asked me for help with this website and our newsletter, Write Angles, and taught me a lot about friendly leadership. My mission as a writer is to “bring forth the treasures hidden within” and, as a human, to help others do the same.
This summer, you can:
- Join the club or renew your membership online
- Join us for a beer at Heinhold’s First & Last Chance Saloon after 3pm on July 7/23rd. we are not having our statewide picnic at Jack London Park, but we’re hanging out in his buddy Jack London’s house.
- Create some goals for your writing and get a little done every day. Stay encouraged. Remember that you probably have never heard of the most prolific writers in the world (Jack, and Steven King, aren’t even on the list.)
If you’d like to contribute to the club,* contact me or another board member.
* We need a newsletter editor! And people to work the door at meetings! And someone to administer our 5th grade story contest! And a new, BART-able, accessible space to feature our monthly speaker program!
