Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. I’ve already read it but I would love to read again in a group to discuss. I also recently purchased books about writing memoir that I’m excited to dive into.

Yes please to everything here!! I would love to be part of a book club specifically about writing and related topics. I second any recommendation for Bird by Bird and also suggest "Letters to a Young Writer" by Colum Colum McCann.

I haven't read any of his books (just articles and talks), but Peter Elbow publishes and focuses on freewriting and "the democratization of writing" -- his books or articles may be good options to consider. Honestly, I think following his advice for freewriting during a psych evaluation heavily skewed my diagnosis because they expected me to be more stressed in my evaluation.
