The Shebeen Club

What it is: a group for practicing literati, whether or not they are making money at it: agents, editors, publishers, spoken word performers, starving students, and even writers!

We do a lot of talking, a wee bit of learning, and a great deal of boasting. Drinking has also been known to play a part in our evenings.

What it is not: a hand-holding support group featuring aromatherapy-enhanced, tearful rounds of “Kumbyah,” an open mic night (I’ve suffered at the hands of too many bad live performances), a boring old lecture series, or a critique group. I always say, they don’t pay to publish me; they pay to edit me. Wouldn’t mind being in a critique group, but it would get too expensive for the others.
