Welcome to Los Angeles Writers Group!

Inspirational, heart-centered creative-writing workshops and private coaching for writers.
We are in Los Angeles and offer both in-person and online workshops, email courses, and online writing challenges.

Heart-Centered

We support, encourage, and inspire writers of all genres. We’ve helped many writers establish or reestablish a productive and creative mindset, fill their pages, and learn their craft.

Supportive

We only pick leaders who lead with love. We hire exceptional group leaders who are adept at engaging small groups of writers. We screen them for their expertise, their diplomacy, and their belief in positive reinforcement. We believe writers need a safe space to grow.

Personal

Our workshops are never about lectures with hundreds of people. Instead, our workshops are always small and geared toward individual attention. We also offer one-on-one coaching for writers working on a first draft or editing for writers with a completed manuscript.

Nicole understands that working with writers doesn't just involve talking about their project. She has the rare and brilliant skill of sensing what is really at the root of slowing a writer down and is more than willing to get into the messy and seemingly "unrelated" discussions that surround every writer's process. Working with her for these past three months has enabled me to minimize the confusion and frustration that always arises in the writing process and get back to making progress on my book faster. Instead of spending days of energy in emotional defeat, I spend an hour on the phone with Nicole and find my way back to the work at hand before evening time. She is a miracle worker, and her diagnostic skills are up there with rocket scientists. I'm not exaggerating. She's brilliant. Few people in the world have as much passion and grace when it comes to teaching the craft of writing. She also has an awe-inspiring ability to work with a widely diverse range of writers and personalities. Working with Nicole was the best investment in myself and my writing aspirations I could make.

It is always a pleasure to gather in this intimate setting with a few writers who want to read literature, together. In this sacred space, we go further and higher when we read out-loud and talk about what makes a particular piece so moving. Then, we can all come alive with inspiration!

If you are a writer who feels discouraged, uninspired, unproductive, and unmotivated, I cannot recommend this challenge enough. Before I took the 15-day challenge I felt crippled by writer's block and disappointed in myself for my lack of productivity. But through a series of relaxing and explorative prompts, the 15-day challenge allowed me to gradually untangle my writer's block, clear my mind, and remember why I love writing. Since I finished it, I now complete a writing prompt almost every day on my own. And instead of looking at that first blank page with dread and doubt, I now see it as an adventure. This challenge will change your attitude about writing for the better and rekindle your passion for the craft. It's more than worth the money. Don't hesitate!

Since I began working with Nicole, she's provided valuable coaching and feedback every time we've met. I came to Nicole with a few ideas scrawled into a Moleskine notebook, and six months later, I proudly printed out the first draft of my manuscript. With her guidance, I've been able to propel my story, characters, and prose to a level I could not have achieved on my own. I cannot recommend working with her highly enough!

It was a great experience and one that needed. I haven’t picked up a “pen” in a creative writing journey in many months. The 15 days motivated me to write and I’m glad to report that it’s only wet my appetite. I fell in love with the creative process again. Nicole, you’re awesome. I liked all of the prompts and the feedback from Nicole and others in this challenge. Also, getting to read others writing touched me too. So much talent out there. Thank you, thank you.

Nicole, I want to thank you for your thought provoking and active participation as the facilitator of this incredible 15-Day experience! I began this workshop with lots of apprehension which was similar to how I tackled my writing, unfortunately. But, with your energy and tenacious daily prompts and up-to-the minute feedback, I was able to defeat the writers block that I often found myself in! I’ve been writing everyday since your workshop and I’m happy to say that I have actually completed two articles that I am preparing to submit for publication! I am incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, professionalism, and mindful energy that you brought to this 15-Day challenge! I’m actually considering doing it a second time!
