The club offers workshops related to the craft of writing by interesting presenters who are professionals in the writing world. Topics range from specific techniques to general approaches, sometimes back to basics, sometimes exploring advanced skills. Our workshops are always provocative, and there’s always something to learn for young writers and those with long credentials lists alike.
The workshops usually take place on the 1st Saturday of the month and are always modestly priced. Club members receive a significant discount on workshops and are notified in advance via email. Pre-registration only. $9.00 for CWC Members. $29.00 non-members. Limited seating. For questions or to register, contact Shereen Rahman (510-845-3425).
We are currently looking for a new workshop coordinator.
