We are one of nineteen branches of the California Writers Club, currently its largest branch and located in Sonoma County.

CWC is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to educating both members and the public in the craft of writing and in the marketing of their work, through public meetings, workshops and conferences. The California Writers Club is a professional writers club open to writers of all genres. It was founded in 1909.

Redwood Branch of the California Writers Club sponsors a wide variety of events and activities throughout the year. Our activities are held in or around Santa Rosa, CA, in beautiful Sonoma County wine country.

Our mailing address: Redwood Writers, P.O. Box 4687, Santa Rosa, CA 95402.

Our membership meeting is usually held on the second Sunday of each month. Our members gather to network, hear branch announcements, and a featured guest speaker.

Monthly meetings are held from 2:30-5 PM at the Flamingo Conference Resort & Spa, Courtyard Room #1 • 2777 Fourth Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95405 • Phone: (707) 545-8530

Other events, such as the Salon and Open Mic Readings, provide a more informal opportunity to meet other members and hear their literary works. Workshops on different genres, the craft of writing and publishing trends further enhance our skills as authors. Every other year, Redwood sponsors an all-day writing conference.

Contests: At least three contests are offered each year, along with a playwriting contest in collaboration with 6th Street Playhouse, Santa Rosa, where winning plays are performed.

Publications: Redwood Writers publishes a members-only anthology each year, launched in the fall. Every other year, a poetry anthology is published, open to all writers, members and non-members.

Redwood branch is located in Sonoma County, California, about sixty miles north of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, and holds its monthly meetings in Santa Rosa while other branch activities are offered throughout Sonoma County.

Our branch motto is “writers helping writers.”
