I just finished reading a book (autobiography by a writer); she mentions the support from the Harlem Writers Guild as being invaluable in her development as a writer.
So, two questions came to mind - and SFWU seems the perfect place to ask:
1. Does the SF Bay Area have anything similar to the Harlem Writers Guild for writers?
2. Can a writer use the critiques portion of the Discussions as a "writer support group"?
I often feel isolated - writing is a lonely profession - and the need to meet and talk (rather than just constant on-line input) seems important. So much is lost when people's conversations remain on-line rather than in person.
Any feedback, suggestions, etc., also welcome.
Thx and ☼ sunshine-filled wishes!

As a would be writer from New Zealand I know how you feel. I hope to attend the 2013 conference and would love to catch up with you / other writers and attend any group sessions you can find.I also prize direct feedback and personal contact. Good luck
