A few years back, I had an idea for a novel, but this time I actually started writing it. I quickly realized I needed people to read my writing in order to determine what worked and what did not; thus the Malibu Writers Circle (MWC) was born. Since then, over 100 writers have come to our meetings, using our workshop format to complete novels, short stories, plays, screenplays, and pilots. Our members have seen their plays produced Off-Broadway, their teleplays on TV, and their fiction and non-fiction published in dozens of literary journals. Members of the MWC have won major awards, scholarships, and contests.
Our small group meets every three weeks, Thursday from 7-930PM in a private and professional setting. Members bring food and drinks, often in abundance.
We critique in a positive but honest manner focusing on what we liked, what we loved, and what could be improved. There are no dues for membership. The primary focus of MWC is fiction, and writers must submit a sample of their fiction in advance of attending a meeting.
