Los Angeles Westside satellite meetings for writers


IWOSC’s monthly drop-in satellite sessions are open to all Los Angeles writers — both members and non-members. (Out-of-town guests are welcome too.)

Robin Quinn, our host

We have several satellites to cover the various areas of Southern California or the Greater Los Angeles area.

During the Covid-19 restrictions our Satellites are meeting online. This makes it possible for EVERYONE to get there, so we hope you’ll consider attending.


Los Angeles Westside Satellite — online for now

IWOSC’s Westside Satellite is in full swing, thanks to Robin Quinn —  a long-time IWOSC member and an LA Book Coach and Editor specializing in self-help, memoir and uplifting fiction.

Our Westside Satellite serves writers from the Palisades south to LAX, and those in Culver City, Inglewood, Ladera Heights, Westwood — even Beverly Hills.

We welcome all interested writers — IWOSC members or not, published or not, Westside resident or not.

The Satellite had been meeting at St. Mary’s of Palms on the first Saturday of every month, followed by a meal at the Grand Casino Bakery & Café in downtown Culver City. However, for the time-being, due to Covid-19, we’re holding meeting virtually via Zoom. The Westside Satellite will be offering programs occasionally during 2022.

Always a Princess

Writing the Historical Romance Novel

Saturday, January 29th
2-4 PM Pacific
Free to members and nonmembers
ON ZOOM

The historical romance novel presents its own challenges. You must do enough research to create a world in a particular time. Your characters will have to reflect that time, in their language and behavior. You need to choose select details to help anchor them in the period. You also need to make the romantic relationship interesting enough to keep the reader turning the pages and coming back for more of your books.
