For those Lesley-U students, alumni, faculty, friends, that may've missed this, here is the link and information about the Marran Group.
The Marran Group was started in an effort to establish a community of writers among current and alumni students of Lesley University's MFA program in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It serves as a place to discuss writing, share your work, your successes, your dark days, to network, workshop, to connect with readers, to support, to breathe a little easier, to cry and laugh, and to make new friends, while keeping and sustaining the old. Writing need not be solitary.
The Marran Group is open to all Lesley MFA alumni, current students, faculty, and friends. It functions first as an online community, and will meet a minimum of twice a year in Cambridge for readings and camaraderie. *Posting to the group should be pertinent in some way to writing, the writing life, and so forth.
You can sign up for daily, monthly, or web only access. To sign up: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MarranGroup/
The group is moderated, please indicate alumni or semester, or friend.
**(Note: The Marran Group is not affiliated with Lesley University in any official capacity.)
