The Oceanside Public Library currently hosts two Writers’ Groups, both of which are open to the public. Each group is led by a volunteer moderator and participants are encouraged to bring 5 copies of 6 pages of their work to each session to share with the group. The sessions are traditional workshops, during which participants critique and discuss each other’s work with the goal to inspire and improve each writer’s project.
The Mission Branch Writers’ Group meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month, 2:00-5:00 p.m., in the Community Room at Mission Branch Library at 3861-B Mission Avenue. The group accepts all genres and formats, including poetry, prose, fiction, nonfiction, and personal essays.
The Civic Center Writers’ Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, 5:00-7:00 p.m., in the 2nd Floor Foundation Room at Civic Center Library at 330 N. Coast Highway. Their focus is fiction and non-fiction writing.
