     •  exercises and ideas to help shape your pieces
     •  thoughtful feedback and careful editing

     •  simpatico and talented women writers to encourage you

Elizabeth Fishel (click here for bio) created the first Wednesday Writers group in 1991 and since then has been leading groups both Wednesdays and Fridays in her Rockridge living-room, just a few blocks from the Rockridge BART stop. To guide and inspire each writer to find her own voice, she draws on her wide experience as a writing instructor and the author of five nonfiction books and dozens of magazine articles.

The groups are open to writers at all stages, from those just beginning and writing for their own pleasure and self-discovery to those who are publishing their work. Our group members’ essays have appeared in The San Francisco Chronicle, The East Bay Monthly, Diablo, The Contra Costa Times, and The Christian Science Monitor, and on KQED’s “Perspectives,” among others, and many have published books and contributed essays to anthologies.
