The California Writers Club offers a multitude of activities and programs for its members and for the public.
Our ongoing Critique Groups help writers practice and polish their craft. We have a climate action group, the Wolf Pack Writers, and a poetry group, Poetrope. See Groups for more info.
We also offer monthly Workshops for writers by professionals, with special rates for members.
Two annual Contests: the 5th Grade Writing Contest and the Write On! Story Contest (formerly the WestSide Story Contest), celebrate local writers. Occasionally we hold a poetry contest at year’s end as well.

We promote various Writers Conferences and our members can get discounts to several.
