Here’s what else is happening for writers in Southern California this month:
Southern California Writers’ Conference (SCWC)
A Writer is a Writer Before, As Well As After, Publication
President’s Day Weekend, February 17-20, 2017
Regardless which path to publication you are pursuing, whether you’re a writer just starting out, a writer unable to determine why your work’s not working, a writer simply in search of some answers, a writer wanting feedback on what you’ve written, or just a writer who wants to hang with other writers and publishing professionals in a safe, supportive community, do yourself a favor and join us for the 31st Annual Southern California Writers’ Conference (and Retreat) in San Diego. Your words are worth it!
