"The dreamers of the day are dangerous people.

For they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.”

~D.H. Lawrence


Poets and Dreamers


Between our three related groups, Poets and Dreamers thrives as a multi-faceted circle of over one thousand professional and creative writers who gather throughout Southern California. Our vibrant, active circle represents established and aspiring authors of commercial fiction, non-fiction, memoir, romance, crime and legal fiction, short fiction, screenplays, literary fiction, historical fiction, professional communications, poetry and more. Within the many specialized circles that meet, our in-depth discussions inspire a brilliant exchange of literary insights, and ultimately, the fruition of our dreams as writers.

Our Process:

-Our writers gather weekly or bi-weekly as professional, cohesive groups to collaborate on the craft.

-We encourage wise creative experimentation while drawing on the collective genius of our literary masters.

-We devote a generous amount of time to in-depth exploration of each writer's work.

-Viable works-in-progress and a commitment to interact positively/professionally are crucial.

-Our main goal: to support thriving groups that work together wisely, positively and productively through the process of completion, revision and publication.

Our Status:

We look forward to working with you as you establish and meet your goals as a writer.
Important elements you should bring to the group:

-Writing background and/or an intense desire to create great works
-Viable work(s)-in-progress
-Commitment to interact positively and exchange critiques in a professional format.

If you would like to take part as a crucial contributor to this intensive, collaborative experience, join our creative circle today and work with us!
