The Main Group is comprised of local writers with a workshop format in a friendly atmosphere. This is an opportunity to really interact – assisting each other with self-publishing, editing, marketing, beta readers, query letters and any topics relevant to writing and publishing. Attendees can make suggestions on how to make the workshops a continuing success. The meet-ups are led by Stanton Swafford, a local author with a debut novel about to be published.
Past meetings have included a self-published guest author (Christopher Lynch) and a round-table discussion on “Social Media Marketing for Independent Writers” featuring a pair of local authors.
In addition to the monthly Main Group meeting, subgroups focused on supportive critique of members’ work are conducted on all remaining Saturdays, also from 10:30 to Noon). These are conducted at a private residence and require their own RSVP’s from the South Bay Creative Writers Group meet-up site.
“South Bay Screenwriters” is a separate meet-up (distinct from the South Bay Creative Writers Group) whose members share and provide feedback on each other’s screenplays. The format is similar to the Creative Writers Workshop. Conducted at a private residence and requires a separate RSVP.
