Independent Writers of Southern California
IWOSC Welcomes you
If you’re a writer in the greater Los Angeles area or Southern California, at any level of your writing career, writing for yourself, for magazines or ezines, working a screenplay or editing copy, or working on a book — writing in any genre, we welcome you.
IWOSC, for over 36 years — one of LA’s longest-running professional writers’ organizations, provides writers of the greater LA or Southern California area with many opportunities to get together: seminars, panel and more! Our About page has more about the educational and informational events we offer for writers…
Our August Event is a Party!
Socializing and conversation is the call of the day as we’re seaside at Whiskey Red’s in Marina del Rey. Good food, lots of chuckles, some nice door prizes, and direct contact with your fellow writers and publishers.

Wondering about our July Seminar?
Our July Seminar was an online webinar: Screenwriting & TV Writing with Pilar Alessandra: 90-minute Q&A
We don’t typically make our Seminars available for purchase but this Webinar audio recording may be purchased.
Additionally in July we had a Members-only Brainstorming Session.
Satellites— Informal sessions for writers
IWOSC’s monthly drop-in satellite sessions are free and open to all writers — both members and non-members.
From Orange County to Pasadena to the San Fernando Valley, IWOSC has writers covered. Bring your writing, your ideas, problems, questions, and complaints. Receive support, laughs, juicy controversy, and plenty of networking. If there isn’t a satellite in your area, we welcome having you create one.
Our local area satellite groups for writers are:
- Orange County — currently on hiatus
- Pasadena/Altadena Satellite – meets in Altadena
- South Bay – meets in El Segundo
- Valley Satellite (San Fernando Valley) – meets in Woodland Hills
- Westside (Los Angeles) — we’re back!
- Ventura County satellite – meets in Thousand Oaks
