About Us

In 22 years, this group has published more than 31 books.

And we continue to work toward publication with three books being read and critiqued right now (2018) 

Early in 2019, we are planning a joint Meet the Authors and Buy a Book! There will be six of us and the theme is:  Six local writers; six great books!"   

The South Bay Writers Workshop, now in its 22nd year, meets every Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. at the Redondo Beach Veterans Senior Center.  Our group is composed of published and working-towards-publication writers.    

You're invited to -

*  Join fellow writers to share your work and to get useful criticism of it.  

*  Hear constructive comments from our supportive group

*  Enjoy a learning experience with professional help.

On Writing

The secret is, attention first to gain

To move our minds and then to entertain

That from the very opening of the scenes

The first may show us what the author means.

write not what cannot be with ease conceived

Some truths may be too strong to be believed.

Make not your tale of accidents too full

Too much variety will make it dull
