The Berkeley branch of the California Writer's Club is holding a Picnic, Poetry & LitCake gathering this Saturday July 20th from 1-4pm in the lovely Joaquin Miller Park, in Oakland.

In addition to the much-anticipated good food n’ fun (Literary Cake-Decorating Contest!) there will be an open mic for writers who wish to share a sample of their writing.

CWC WILL PROVIDE: Hamburgers and all the fixin’s, plates, napkins, tableware, etc.
YOU BRING: Side dish, appetizer, salad, or dessert to share, plus drinks for you and your guests.
NOTE: In keeping with the spirit of Our Founder, alcoholic beverages are permitted. Please imbibe responsibly.

The event is primarily for members of the Berkeley chapter but if you are interesting in attending please contact Linda Brown as there is still space available.
