Having trouble finding a cool literary community in Los Angeles? Want to make new friends and network with accomplished writers & literary professionals? Then you've come to the right place!

Every month, we host a networking event for writers & literary professionals at a bar in Downtown L.A. or West L.A. We also organize monthly book panels, readings and discussions featuring award-winning writers in many genres including fiction, memoir, screenwriting, TV writing, journalism and playwriting. The panels offer a great opportunity not only to hear successful writers discuss craft and their careers but provide a space to meet fellow writers and make new connections.

Networking events are always free, and panels include free snacks and sangria. I look forward to seeing you at our next event!

**This group is for literary panels and networking events in Los Angeles and is not to be confused with the San Francisco based spoken variety show called “Writers With Drinks.”
