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 Berkeley-cwc@gmail.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.

Happy reading!

Write Angles Now Available on Website

In an effort to increase the readership of our Berkeley Branch newsletter, we at Write Angles wondered if it might not be advantageous to publish it on our website. Previously, receiving the monthly newsletter was a members-only benefit; but by accident, I posted the September issue on our website for all to see. When I mentioned this mistake to my husband, he asked why we didn’t always put the newsletter up on the website.

Hmm…That’s when I polled the presidents and newsletter editors of the other CWC branches to find out if they publish their newsletters on their websites, and if so, why. The response was almost unanimous: most other branches have been doing this for months or even years. Reasons to do so include the promotional benefits for members who have publishing news to share, more exposure for members who write articles for the newsletter, and a bigger audience for those who advertise their services in Member Marketplace.

So at our board meeting last Saturday, we officially decided to make Write Angles available to everyone via our website. Of course, for newsletter content, only members may share their news, advertise their services, enter the monthly writers’ contest, and submit articles. But in the future, everyone will have access to the newsletter as soon as it is published.

I think that would be called a win-win.
