Fostering the art of writing in Laguna Beach and beyond


Third Street Writers, based in Laguna Beach California, is dedicated to fostering the development of new and veteran writers by providing opportunities to study, produce, and showcase literature. In addition to individual projects, Third Street Writers sponsors writing workshops, public reading events and community outreach. Further to supporting and promoting these individual and group endeavors, Third Street Writers strives to create a dynamic center to link with other artistic communities in Laguna Beach and Orange County.

spring cleaning OPEN MIC

Due to public health concerns, our reading event has been postponed. We hope to reschedule later this spring.

See our Events page for more details.

Our weekly meetings are open to all experienced writers. The gatherings include writing exercises, motivational tools and an opportunity for writers to receive feedback on their work in a structured, supportive setting from veteran writers. 

Due to COVID-19, we currently are holding our workshop via videoconference every Monday 10AM-1PM.

Please contact Amy Dechary at for more information.
