Get To Know Us

Welcome!

Please take a moment to get to know us better, as your local branch and as part of an amazing state-wide organization of writers.

It's been my great pleasure to serve CCW as its Hospitality Chair for the past several years, helping provide a smile and warm greeting to those just getting acquainted with our branch. Over the years, I've formed valued friendships in the branch, and I'm excited about my new role. I look forward to continuing growing those relationships as president.

Annual Summer BBQ

Dear member on Central Coast Writers,

We are happy to bring back our popular August picnic! It will be held at Whispering Pines Park, in Monterey, on Sunday August 21, from noon to 3 pm. This year, we'll be doing a potluck, so bring your favorite summer dish to share with others. The club will have bottled water available, and feel free to bring your own bottle.

We'll have good food, some games and great conversations on the schedule. RSVP to me at mariaskytta@gmail.com by August 20. But even if you haven't RSVPed, feel free to join us on the day.

Please note that this is a members-only (plus one guest) event, so if you haven't renewed yet, there's still time. You can renew online atthis website. from the link on the right side of this page, or you can mail a $45 check, payable to CWC Central Coast Branch, to Central Coast Writers, P.O. Box 997, Pacific Grove, CA 93950.

If you are not sure if you have already renewed for this year, just send me an email.

Hope to see many of you at the picnic!
