What we’re about

The CWC Sacramento Branch is a fantastic opportunity for writers to meet and network with other writers and industry professionals in the local community.

Members write poetry and all genres of fiction and non-fiction such as memoir, short stories, and novels. Our historic organization hosts twice-monthly meetings open to the public which include presentations by renowned speakers, such as agents, editors, and publishers.

The benefits of membership include access to newsletters and activities, from 22 club branches, the quarterly Bulletin filled with tips, the CWC Literary Review comprised of members’ work, and support groups/critique groups.

Members range from students who are just starting out to writers who have been published many times over. We support writers of all levels, ages, genres and writing styles. Check us out!

*CA Writers Club was founded in 1909 by Jack London, George Sterling, and Herman Whitaker, along with others.
