Whether you dream of becoming a published author, or you simply want to jumpstart your writing career, joining a writing group like CBW-LA will help you get started.
In October 2013, we released our first book published by our imprint, CBW-LA Publications, entitled Story Sprouts Writing Day Workshop and Anthology 2013. Brimming with stories from talented new voices, as well as exercises and writing tips, this is a fabulous resource and guide for all aspiring writers and published authors.
Although the group's main focus is on writing for children, we welcome writers of all kinds, as well as those who love to read children's books.
Our workshops provide tips and lessons on the craft and business of writing. You'll learn how to create characters so real, they practically jump off the page, weave storylines to make an interesting plot, revise and edit your manuscript, write and submit query letters to agents and editors, and how the publishing industry works.
You can get helpful feedback on your manuscript through our critique sessions, and our creative writing sessions help in sparking the next great idea, or simply help you improve your writing skills so you can find your voice and style.
We also host an annual Writing Day Anthology Workshop, in which CBW-LA members and guests compose publication-ready pieces in a one-day intensive workshop. The Anthology title is Story Sprouts.
