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.)

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.

Originally Ray Richmond was approached to write a Betty White biography to coincide with her 100th birthday, January 17th, 2022. Unfortunately the world lost Betty on December 31, 2021 – just 24 days after Ray’s book about her was released. Fans were drawn to the original hardcover edition  of Betty White: 100 Remarkable Moments in an Extraordinary Life, and it outsold its first print run. A packed schedule of media interviews followed for Ray.
