welcome downtown writers!

Welcome to the Downtown Writer's Group, a recently-formed group of screenwriters, playwrights, novelists, short story writers, poets, movie trailer copywriters, and other writers who live and/or work in downtown Los Angeles.

We haven't put together a mission statement yet, but this is not a workshop for people who want to learn how to write. There are many other places that we can recommend, many online and in Southern California. This is a group for professional and aspiring writers with some level of experience and/or expertise. Several of us are in the final stages of projects, a few of us write professionally. However, our goal is to expand and develop forums and sub-groups so that everyone downtown who is interested in writing, no matter what level or genre, can learn and work with other fellow downtown writers.

If you're a writer, living and/or working in downtown Los Angeles and are interested in joining the Downtown Writer's Group, stay tuned for announcements on meeting dates/times and venues. Or you can always email me with questions, concerns or your desire to join us.
