South Bay satellite group 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 South Bay Satellite

Host: Barbie Herrera

IWOSC’s South Bay Satellite is for writers from LAX south to the Palos Verdes Peninsula, San Pedro, Long Beach, Lomita, and from Torrance, Gardena and Carson west to Redondo, Hermosa, and Manhattan Beach.

Westsiders are also welcome as we do have writers attending from Santa Monica, Venice, and further North. If you are a writer who lives or works anywhere in California’s South Bay area — or would like to make the trip to attend — we welcome you to this independent writers satellite group.

Please stop by and check out the IWOSC Facebook page for the latest updates!

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month. We’re back at the  Marmalade Cafe patio through October.

Hosted by Barbie Herrera
