Next Meetup

Writers Blok PLUS Adele Lim (Screenwriter: Crazy Rich Asians)
Structure. Support. Community. And the screenwriter of Crazy Rich Asians, Adele Lim. The first 90 minutes of Writers Blok are quiet - a peaceful place to write with plenty of space and the latent peer pressure that comes when you know those around you might be writing the next blockbuster or bestseller. Then, at 8:30 pm, the pens will go down, the laptops will turn off, and we'll welcome Adele Lim for a Q&A. Adele has also been a writer, producer, and executive producer in TV, working on shows such as Private Practice, Life Unexpected, and One Tree Hill. We'll talk to Adele about persistence and her journey to screenwriting success. All of this accompanied by tea, coffee, and light snacks. ** All levels and disciplines are welcome at Writers Blok. Come when you can; regular attendance is not required. Although it is, of course, encouraged. We get writers of all sorts: screen, poetry, fiction, and non. Some of our writers are published authors or people with work that's been produced onscreen. Most of them, though, are people who are just trying to find time to write. Either way, we'll be glad to see you. Writers Blok costs $30 for a single visit on nights with guest speakers. If it's your first time, it's $15.

What we're about

Some people like to write in isolation. We are not those people.

Writing is like going to the gym or to the yoga studio -- it's just easier when there's a little peer pressure.

At Writers Blok, we provide everything you'll need for a productive writing session: unlimited coffee, tea, and snacks. Even the music is selected with writers in mind. And there's chocolate at the end. It's like going to the coffee shop, except that no one is going to look at you sideways because you haven't bought anything in an hour.

What we're most proud of, though, is our ability to build community. Each of our sessions ends with some form of group work: a chance to talk about goals and dreams. And to commiserate about whatever obstacle has come up in our writing.

We welcome writers of all disciplines at Writers Blok. We get screenwriters, novelists, poets, memoirists, and comedians. Some of our writers are professionals; others are just getting started.

We frequently welcome guest speakers for Q&As about the writing process and their own journeys to the top (or the middle). Past guests include Rob McElhenney, Megan Ganz, Bill Lawrence, and Danny Zuker.

We host two types of sessions: Sprints and Extended Sessions. When you come to a Sprint Session, we'll give you a piece of chalk and have you write a goal for the session on our chalkboard. Then comes 50 minutes of uninterrupted writing, followed by a quick check-in on your goals. Extended Sessions consist of 90 minutes of uninterrupted writing, followed by 30 minutes of small-group breakout sessions featuring talking prompts and chocolate.

Our sessions are held inside our own dedicated space in the Culver City Arts District, hosted by working writers who know the ups and downs and ins and outs of living and writing in Los Angeles.

For first-timers, Sprint Sessions are $5; regular price is $10. Extended Sessions: first-timers: $10; regular price: $15. Unlimited monthly memberships are $60.

For more information, please visit writersblok.org.

We hope you'll come see us soon. We'll be glad to have you.

Writing can be lonely. It doesn't have to be.
