Creative Writing Workshops in San Diego – Let’s Get Creative

Hello, San Diego!


View all our creative writing workshops in San Diego, retreats, Daily Writing Challenges, and coaching programs here. 


We’d love to meet you. Welcome to LA Writers Group.


We offer writing workshops, daily writing challenges, and coaching programs for writers in Los Angeles, San Diego, and online

Our workshops encourage creativity, spark inspiration, teach writers to write better scenes, and help writers find other writers who understand the writing life.

Most of our workshops are generative in nature, i.e., we get words on the page, although this can vary by workshop.
