is a group of dedicated writers who have been meeting since the millennium. Most of us  met  at the University of California Irvine.

We meet the first and third Thursdays of the month in Corona del Mar, California. The “Well” is a safe place to explore and hone our craft. We work in different genres and read and critique what we have written.

Each meeting begins with a twenty minute free write, and if we want to, we share what we have written. Then we read and critique works in progress. Finally we provide information on books, events and literary news.

The Writing Well is a place of refreshment. It is a place to gather and drink deeply when we need inspiration and encouragement. For information contact:
