Fostering the art of writing in Laguna Beach and beyond

Third street honored at 2023 art stars


On April 28, we were honored to win a "Louie" at the Laguna Beach Art Alliance's 15th annual Art Star Awards for Best Arts Collaboration for our ekphrastic chapbook Art Inscribed. Working with the Festival of Arts and funded by a generous grant from the FOA Foundation, we raised over $1100 for The Artists Fund's hardship grant program.

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.
