Maya Angelou Writers’ Guild

Last week I was invited to discuss writing with members of the Maya Angelou Writers’ Guild. The Portland group has been meeting for 17 years! It all started when some of the original members attended a reception for Maya Angelou in Portland, Oregon. Angelou, perhaps most famous for her memoir “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” suggested that the Portland writers start a writing group, which they did. I enjoyed meeting with them and finding out about their writing projects. Here’s to another 17 years!
