Los Angeles Westside satellite meetings for writers

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

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

Los Angeles Westside Satellite

Thanks to Robin Quinn, IWOSC’s Westside Satellite is back!

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.

We’re currently planning both social get-togethers and speaker meetings.

We are looking for restaurant venues open to our group as well as places with good spaces for speakers.

Possible locations include West LA, Santa Monica and Culver City. We’d love to hear your researched ideas.

Hosted by Robin Quinn
