The Ventura County Writers Club is an active group of more than 175 novelists, short story writers, journalists, memoirists, screenwriters, playwrights, poets, and humorists. Founded in 1933 by a group of Ojai writers, VCWC still maintains itself as an independent organization. Our mission is “To Encourage the Craft,” and we extend support, guidance, and a networking opportunity to our members, at all levels of expertise, both published and unpublished. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in or a passion for writing.
Speakers at our monthly meetings explore all phases of the writing process: motivation, creativity, publicity, publication, and more. The club assists members in forming critique workshops and generates opportunities for publication and publicity through several sources: our monthly newsletter, annual short story and poetry contests, and our biannual anthology. All club activities are designed to assist our members expand their creativity through their writing.
