We hope to see you all this Sunday, February 19 as we present Fred Setterberg, author of Lunch Bucket Paradise, speaking on “Writing a True Life Novel” at the Oakland Main Library. Directions are here.

Please note: in January we started new agenda times to allow more time for networking before the program starts!  Look at the flyer  for the specific agenda times, and be aware that we are tweaking these times as we move into spring.

At this meeting, look for the CWC Northern California (NorCal) Group Publishing Pathways Mentor training notebook, and find out how you can leverage your membership in the Berkeley Branch by accessing the expertise of members in our 10 Northern California Branches.

For those of you in the Marketing Group, Brigitte Claydon will lead the discussion on “Joint Author Events/Alternative Venues for Book Readings.”  The Marketing Group is another member-only benefit.  Potential members are invited to see what we do one-time.
Save the Date!
