  1. Looks interesting. Nice to see such brave souls writing! I have published a lot, and am taking a break from the angst ridden work of writing. Now that I retired from law teaching and research I am glad to help other professional writers. Is this a group for me? I live in Salem. How far is the drive to the meeting place?
    Thanks.

    1. We’re on the West side of Portland, probably around an hour from Salem, not too far from 217. We’d love to meet you.
