Sun. May 5: Illustrators and Writers Meetup

Date(s) - 05/05/2019
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Espresso Roma
2960 College Avenue - Berkeley, CA 94705-2214

This is a free event from 10 a.m. to noon at Espresso Roma in Berkeley.

Let’s meet for coffee and chat. Illustrators and writers are welcome!

Come out from your writing and illustrating caves and share your stories, experiences and questions with the rest of us! All writers and illustrators are welcome, from all areas, including non-members. This is a casual meet-up; the only fee is the price of your drink/food. You are welcome to bring work to share (or books you love), though please don’t expect any critiques. If you are looking for a critique group, this is a great chance to meet others who might be looking or who have room in theirs.

Please note: we will likely be in the side room off of Ashby.

See you there!


This event is free to the public –

particularly the writing and illustrating public!

For questions, email Susan Szecsi
