What we're about

Whether you're working on the next great American novel or wondering if you'd enjoy creative writing, come join us on Saturday morning. We provide three randomly selected prompts promptly at 10:15 AM, and after 25-35 minutes of extemporaneous writing, everyone reads their results. All levels of ability welcome! All genres acceptable. Writers' block busted regularly.

Our first anthology, Brevity in Paradise, is now available on!

Established in 2012, the OC Writers Guild meets every Saturday in Newport Beach near Fashion Island. Membership is free. There are no dues or fees, but you have to BYOPP (bring your own pen and paper).
