This website answers all basic questions about the Writing Salon. Or, if you can’t find the answer, give Jane a call at 415.609.2468. She has been running the Writing Salon for thirteen years and will be happy to help you.
When do you become a writer?
When you first write?
When your writing is first praised?
When your writing is first published?
No self-definition can be made from outside.
You don’t “become a writer” because others say that you have written well.
You become a writer because you tell yourself that this is what you are.
If you have fundamental self-honesty, you will then write.
You will carry out the activity you have linked with your deepest identity.
Your membership card as a writer is issued in the closet of your soul.
— Susan Shaughnessy, Walking on Alligators
The Writing Salon was proud to have been included in San Francisco Magazine’s
