Fostering the art of writing in Laguna Beach and beyond

We have gone hybrid! We are now meeting in person Mondays 12-2 PM in the Game Room at the Susi Q Center, 380 Third Street, Laguna Beach. Those who cannot attend in person can join virtually via Zoom. 


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. 

Please contact Amy Dechary at for more information.



This spring, we were honored to receive a grant from the Festival of Arts Foundation to create Art Inscribed, a chapbook of stories, poems, and essays inspired by the exhibited works at the summer 2022 Festival of Arts.
