Ventura County 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. You’ll find them all under the Upcoming Events menu. However, this group’s info is on the page listed below.

Ventura County Satellite Group

Hosted by: Kathleen Kaiser

IWOSC’s Ventura County satellite for LA area writers is part of W&PN —  Writers & Publisher Network.

June 20 meeting topic:
Talking BookTok

with Desireé Duffy, founder of The BookFest, Black Château, Books That Make You and host of the award-winning Books That Make You Show.

Get the scoop on BookTok, the bookish community within TikTok that has taken command of the literary world’s attention. More than a social media platform, #BookTok and #TikTok are communities for creatives to express themselves. The right kind of promotion can help authors and publishers build audiences and fanbases. The big question, though, is it right for you?

We’re taking a break July and August and will resume with a September meeting.
