Writing can be a lonely pursuit, but it doesn't have to be.

 

Hi there. 

Do you have the writing bug, but sometimes feel like you're going it alone? We are a group of writers based in Stockton, California looking to support each other through the entire process of crafting stories. 

 

Places for the craft 

Below are a few places in Stockton we meet with others to talk about writing, what we are going to write, and how to do it. Oh yeah, we write there too.

It's all about getting the words out of your head. Join the local Stockton Region  to keep up with kickoff parties, write-ins, hangouts, and closing celebrations in Stockton.


California Writers Club

San Joaquin Valley Branch

"California Writers Club was founded in 1909, growing out of the lively literary movement in the Oakland hills in the early years of the 20th century, gatherings that included the likes of Jack London, Joaquin Miller and California’s first poet laureate, Ina Coolbrith."

The San Joaquin Valley Writers is a local branch of the state club and is currently hosting meets at the UOP Main Library, Stockton, California the second Saturday of every month from 12:30PM to 2:30PM (critique sessions afterwards for those interested).


Stockton Writers First Fridays

Open to the public

First Friday of the Month

First Fridays are an informal gathering of Stockton Writers, usually held at a cafe or other casual eatery that is accessible to the public. We might talk about upcoming events, books we are reading, things we want to work, or just chat.
