Guild’s Mission

. . . to promote, support, and encourage the writing art for adults and youth. The anthology is a fund-raising project with all proceeds helping the Guild continue in that effort. As a collaborative partner in the larger San Diego writing community since 1979.

Some of our outreach projects include:

* Speakers Bureau – professionals are available for presentations to groups in San Diego County. Topics include creative and non-fiction writing and marketing published work.
* Manuscript Review – members may submit up to 30 pages of a novel, short fiction or memoir for evaluation/critique by the Guild’s Recommendation Committee. An SDWEG rating is assigned which can be used when contacting agents, editors and publishers.
* Online references and resources for writers on our website.
* Current calendar of local literary community activities and events.
* Monthly meetings with guest speakers addressing timely topics on writing/publishing.

    Thanks for suggesting our writer’s read and critique group in La Mesa. We have one opening available for anyone interested in joining us, call me at 619-444-4015.

    Wonderful to see our members are taking advantage of this website you so ably created. Thank you for all your hard work.



    • hello Muriel, I’m new here just moved to SD from Los Angeles in August looking to get plugged in. Do you need any help running this group? I’m happy to volunteer some time each month if you could use some help. I miss being involved in Scriptwriters Network back in LA and other groups. Happy to help :) Also, is there a room number where to meet in the health services building? Are there any active writing groups downtown or close to Cortez Hill? thanks! Amira


      • Amira, I just realized this message, though addressed to Muriel, is one I should have answered before. I hope you are able to attend one of our upcoming meetings in order to find out where you can contribute. We elected new members of the Board of Directors at Monday’s meeting, but there are always other opportunities.

        There is only one room at the Health Services building where outside groups can meet – the San Diego Room. It is where the Marketing Support Group meets ahead of our regular monthly meetings.

        I’m not sure about whether there are active writing groups that meet downtown or near Cortez Hill. I recommend you check Meetup.com, a great source for learning what groups meet locally. SDW/EG has a Meetup group which provides information about and sends reminders of each meeting.

  5. If you are a member of SDW/EG and are interested in forming a support group for for marketing your work (not a class, or programs, or a read-and-critique group) rep;y here.


    • I am interested. After Larry’s presentation last week I thought about providing information on creating a WordPress site for book promotion as a topic for such a support group. I would be willing to put a presentation together for this.


    • I am very interested. I have received such conflicting advice, it would be nice to join together with others and sort out the strategies that work and those that aren’t as effective.

      I am very interested in joining a support group. Getting up a website turned into a nightmare for me. I’m interested working with others on a checklist of features the site should have. Also, I received such much conflicting advice (especially on Author’s Catapult), it would be nice to join together with others and sort out the strategies that work and those that aren’t as effective.

  6. Last night’s program with Larry Edwards sharing his wealth of experience on how he successfully planned and then executed a marketing strategy for the release of his memoir, Dare I Call It Murder?, was excellent. I spent the entire ride home thinking about the ideas Larry shared and how the Guild can provide support to its members when embarking on a marketing adventure. Thanks very much, Larry!
