"The dreamers of the day are dangerous people.

For they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.”

~D.H. Lawrence


Poets and Dreamers


Between our three related groups, Poets and Dreamers thrives as a multi-faceted circle of over one thousand professional and creative writers who gather throughout Southern California. Our vibrant, active circle represents established and aspiring authors of commercial fiction, non-fiction, memoir, romance, crime and legal fiction, short fiction, screenplays, literary fiction, historical fiction, professional communications, poetry and more. Within the many specialized circles that meet, our in-depth discussions inspire a brilliant exchange of literary insights, and ultimately, the fruition of our dreams as writers.

 

Our Process:

-Our writers gather weekly or bi-weekly as professional, cohesive groups to collaborate on the craft.

-We encourage wise creative experimentation while drawing on the collective genius of our literary masters.

-We devote a generous amount of time to in-depth exploration of each writer's work.

-Viable works-in-progress and a commitment to interact positively/professionally are crucial.

-Our main goal: to support thriving groups that work together wisely, positively and productively through the process of completion, revision and publication.

Our Status:

We look forward to working with you as you establish and meet your goals as a writer. 
Important elements you should bring to the group:

-Writing background and/or an intense desire to create great works 
-Viable work(s)-in-progress 
-Commitment to interact positively and exchange critiques in a professional format.

If you would like to take part as a crucial contributor to this intensive, collaborative experience, join our creative circle today and work with us!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
