"Towards our efforts to become better writers, nothing takes the place of putting words on the page," says meetup leader Keith Donnell. "Just like physical training, increasing our writing strength requires consistent and sustained practice. Often, the more words put to page, the easier it becomes to put more there."

The Writing Salon Monthly Meetup is designed to provide an intentional and facilitated space to help you keep a finger on your own creative pulse. At the same time, you'll have the opportunity to engage with a community of other members of The Writing Salon.

Silence your phone, leave your distractions at the door, and spend an hour and a half of your weekend with The Writing Salon. Keith will provide optional writing prompts and exercises, poetic constraints, pre-writing activities, and more! Expect a fun and stress-free environment to play on the page and to mingle with other members of The Writing Salon.


Keith Donnell Jr., born and raised in the Philadelphia area, now lives and writes in San Francisco. He’s a recent graduate from San Francisco State University’s M.F.A. program, focusing mostly on poetry, and he holds a M.A. in English from the University of Southern California—where he studied topics related to 19th and 20th century African American literature, migration and culture. His work has appeared in journals including Big Muddy, Juked, New American Writing, Yemassee Journal, Berkeley Poetry Review, Redivider, and LUMINA. He is the former Editor-in-Chief of Fourteen Hills: The SFSU Review.
