California Writers Club Member
"Open Mic 3-Minute Readings"
As we do each year, we get to know our members just a little bit better through their written words. California Writers Club members have the opportunity to read aloud 3 minutes of their written works to our audience.

Keep in mind that readers will be limited to official members of the CWC. Guests will not be invited to read at this event. However, this is a good way to learn about the members. Enjoy original writing from heartfelt to humorous to mesmerizing to mysterious, discover kindred spirits among OC's finest writing community.

In January our featured speaker format will return as the CWC Orange County chapter continues to provide education, inspiration, and motivation to local writers. But in the spirit of the holiday season, we take the time to get to know each other just a little better this month and share some written gems. Come join us!

CWC members write novels, short stories, screen plays, poetry, nonfiction articles and books, commercial work and more.

More than half our members are published writers.
