The Contra Costa Women Writers' Collective was founded in June 2000 and meets on the third Tuesday of each month. We are writers of poetry, fiction, essays and submission letters. We have published one collection of our works and have hosted two public readings at Bonanza Street Books in Walnut Creek. This is not a beginning writers' group, but a gathering where first drafts can be introduced to constructive and useful feedback and where pieces ready for publication can be fine-tuned. We keep the group intentionally small -- about 12 members -- but currently we have several spots available. We will be holding an open meeting this summer. If you are interested in finding out more or perhaps joining us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
