Sunday Creative Writing Workshop

private residence

address TBA upon registration, Los Angeles, CA 90046

11:00am to 1:00pm

Be creative every weekend and learn about the craft of writing along the way. Los Angeles Writers Group offers a supportive environment where you can show up and write for 2 hours based on creative writing prompts we’ll give you. You’ll delve into new characters, explore different settings, hone memories for memoir pieces, or discover a new poetic form. You can share what you wrote, or not–no pressure! Either way, you’ll leave feeling inspired, with new writing and new ideas. The writing exercises we give are based on the needs of the group, on narrative elements, and on highlighting your inner creativity, propelling you to write what you may have never otherwise written. Please note that these workshops are not lecture-based and do not include a critique portion. We get right down to writing.
