Structure, accountability, and community...in other spaces.
HOW IT WORKS
Writers Blok is a co-writing space in Culver City, California. Every week, we host 48 structured writing sessions so writers can find accountability and community.
But we know that not everyone can make it to our building. That's why we host pop-ups in other locations. Each pop-up lasts two hours and is made up of three sections:
1. Planning/goal-setting for the 50-minute writing session.
2. 50 minutes of writing.
3. The creation of an action plan for your writing when you leave the pop-up.
It's structure. It's accountability. It's community. It works. Check for a location near you!
THE WRITERS BLOK STORY
WHO WE ARE
Our pop-ups are always hosted by a trained Writing Guide. All of our Writing Guides are working writers themselves.
This is us:
Paul Shirley founded Writers Blok because he hated writing alone and thought there might be others like him. He's had two books published and has written for Slate, The Wall Street Journal, and Esquire.
Jamie Hoang's debut novel, Blue Sun, Yellow Sky, won the Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Adult Fiction.
Paddy Doheny has written three feature scripts, three original pilots, and a spec or two, all in preparation for the next big opportunity.
Sierra DuCharme-Hansen is a graduate of Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. She's worked as an assistant to television writers and will be a TV writer herself one day.
Nicholas Jackman is a graduate of the University of California-Riverside. He's our resident film buff.
