About Us

About our writer's group:

Around the (Writer's) Block is a diverse assemblage of men and women, of all ages, and of various ethnicities. We all like to write to get out our thoughts and to entertain others, but often need each other to help push us “Around the (Writer’s) Block.”

We’ve all had our works published in journals or newspapers. One of our members has self-published a book. None of us are professional writers (yet), but one of us is a successful artist.

Our group traces its genesis to two 2003 writing workshops sponsored by the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library. From the workshops, two chapbooks were published. Subsequently, we published three more chapbooks - 2005, 2009, and 2011.

We are a group that strongly supports each other and sees the potential in our fellow writers. Our goal is to pull out our strengths through suggestions and prodding.
