About

Are you a writer?  

Would a supportive community of other writers help you when you need ideas as to how to get over a problem with your work or just feel overwhelmed, blocked, or stressed from the solitary nature of the trade?

You’re not alone.

FAW is a mutual support group.  We’re helping each other push projects through to completion.

Fremont Area Writers is the Centennial Branch of the California Writers Club.

The California Writers Club is one of the nation’s oldest professional clubs for writers, founded in 1909. We are a nonprofit education corporation with eighteen branches in California. Our organization is dedicated to educating writers of all levels and disciplines in the craft of writing and in the marketing of their work.

Here at Fremont Area Writers we sponsor on-going projects to help our members advance their skills and learn how to complete, market, sell and promote our books and articles.  

By encouraging participation in California Writers Club events we encourage the development of contacts with other publishing industry professionals.  

During our meeting we always recognize members who have reached milestones in their work or won awards.  

In the fifteen minutes before each meeting and during the break between the Speaker, members mingle and catch up with each-other’s work.  

At each monthly meeting, after our membership business is complete, we host a variety of industry professionals who share information on topics ranging from “How to Create an Opening Paragraph” (so compelling that your reader won’t be able to put your book down) to Understanding the Laws and Basic Contractual Concepts Authors Need to Know”

Check under Upcoming and Past Events for past and future speakers and their topics.

On the Fourth Monday evening of each month, (7PM) anyone can come to Suju’s Coffee on Thornton in Fremont to read from their own work and request suggestions from other authors as to how to fix problems or get past roadblocks.

Once your book is published, you’ll want to become active in our Book Signings, where authors read from, sell and sign their books at local venues.

Sound good?  Then come!  Be our guest at our next meeting on the fourth Saturday of the Month at 2PM (excepting July and December).  There’s no charge.  

We hope to see you there, but even if you decide to go it alone, best wishes to you and your project from all of us.
