Fostering the art of writing in Laguna Beach and beyond

We are taking a brief summer break. We will resume our weekly workshop on September 12, 2022.  We meet Mondays 12-2 PM in the Game Room at the Suzi 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.



On August 14, we launched Art Inscribed at the Festival of Arts. 16 writers, 18 artists and the Laguna Beach community came together to raise $1,000 for The Artists Foundation!

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.
