A Community for Writers and Editors

The San Diego Writers and Editors Guild is a group of writers and editors who are dedicated to learning, sharing, and meeting with others on their writing journey. We know becoming a successful writer requires time, effort, study, practice, patience, dedication, determination, talent and perseverance. Our goal is to help you achieve your goals by providing help and support not only in the craft of writing but in the business side as well.
