Re: [lit_scribbler] Introduce Yourself!

This is my first time on Speakeasy and after reading the first handful of messages, I stopped at yours and clicked on the link that took me to your short story. Let me qualify this by saying that I love reading short stories and have been attempting to write a few of my own.
I expected your story to be mediocre, though I am not sure why, and was so pleasantly surprised to have thoroughly enjoyed it. Congratulations on your first success in this venue. I wish you many more.
Though Doyle may be a common name, any relation to Kevin Doyle married with 3 children? He and his wife are friends.
My question relates to your writing group. I live near UCLA and am just beginning to look into finding a writing group. Will you advise me on a place to start? I have also written poetry and aspire to feel comfortable enough one day to show my work. I am also looking for a creative writing class so that I may feel secure that the fundamentals of my writing are still in tact. Though it was a decade ago, I briefly wrote and produced longform television, but at this stage I feel very out of the loop.
Thank you, and anyone else on Speakeasy, for any advice you may have for me.
