VB Writes...Nonfiction & Memoir

Sun, 01/20/2019 - 3:00pm
1200 11th St
Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3-5pm

We have eclectic tastes that range from biography, history, nature writing, and self-help, but tend to focus primarily on the memoir. Our process is to bring a printed copy of your piece for each member of the group to follow while you read aloud. The group critiques aloud and also writes notes on your print out, and returns the print outs to you for you to keep. Critiquing is honest and encouraging. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings before submitting their own works for critique.

The Gold Tooth In the Crooked Smile of God crosses mystical lines, borders on magic. From Douglas Cole, a celebrated Seattle poet. “There's some kind of magic going on in Douglas Cole's The Gold Tooth in the Crooked Smile of God,” says Jim Daniels, poet, screenwriter, and author. “These well-wrought poems celebrate the forgotten with dignity and warmth,” says John Skoyles, Editor Ploughshares, and author The Nut File and A Moveable Famine.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the slice. To her horror, she finds that her cheerful mother tastes of despair. Soon, she’s privy to the secret knowledge that most families keep hidden: her father’s detachment, her mother’s transgression, her brother’s increasing retreat from the world. But there are some family secrets that even her cursed taste buds can’t discern.
