Sunday Creative Writing Workshop

Los Angeles Writers Group Headquarters

1728 Laurel Canyon Blvd., Unit B, Los Angeles, CA, 90046

11:00am to 1:00pm

Our biggest hit! Write every Sunday, and learn a lot about writing along the way. Introducing the Los Angeles Writers Group Sunday workshops! Every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Los Angeles Writers Group will offer a workshop where you can show up and write for 2 hours based on creative writing prompts we give you. Write, then read (or don’t read – no pressure!) what you wrote, but either way, you’ll leave with new writings, with new ideas, and feeling inspired. The writing exercises we give are based on the needs of the group, on sheer creativity, the elements of fiction, and to write things you may have never otherwise written. Please note that these workshops are not lecture-based. We get right down to writing. There is also no critique portion in these workshops, only writing.
