Writing Community

Looking for a creative writing community in Los Angeles, San Diego, or online?

The hardest thing about being a writer is finding a creative writing community that offers inspiration,  motivation, and support.  Creative writing can be lonely work and can feel desolate especially when looking for inspiration to create new material or when looking for constructive feedback on completed work or on a work-in-progress.

To fill this need for a creative writing community first in the Los Angeles area, now in San Diego and online, LAwritersgroup.com has created several professionally-moderated creative writing groups throughout the Los Angeles area where writers can establish these kinds of connections. We run workshops for all levels of writers, regardless of what genre you write.

Our charter workshops are our generative creative writing workshops, which we’ve facilitated since our inception in 2003.  These workshops are open to writers of all experience levels and all genres.  We keep these creative writing communities small, from 4 – 12 writers. These groups are designed for all writers, regardless of genre or level and often attract fiction writers, screenwriters, poets, essayists, comedy writers, and even non-fiction writers. The main focus of these groups is to create new work and encourage writers to get comfortable reading their work.

We often announce genre-specific writing classes, workshops, and retreats via our newsletter.

Classes, workshops, & seminars we’ve offered in the past are:

  • Fiction writing workshops
  • Creative writing retreats

  • TV scriptwriting workshops
