Hump Day Book Tour

Wednesday?  You know what that means—time for the Southern California Writers Association’s brand spanking new HUMP DAY BOOK TOUR! What is the SCWA Hump Day Book Tour? I’m glad you asked. Every Wednesday at 10:00 AM PST, SCWA turns our Facebook over to a different author. Guests have 5-7 minutes to introduce themselves, their work, and share a quick writing tip or two. So take a break, grab a cup of coffee, and enjoy—as SCWA’s Hump Day Book Tour proudly presents award winning, author Naomi Hirahara.

Message from the Board

We miss seeing your faces, sharing your trials and tribulations, and celebrating your writing successes! But the good news is that abiding by social distancing doesn’t mean you have to be alone. SCWA is a community of writers and publishing professionals committed to improving our craft and to becoming smarter business people. More importantly, we are a group of people who support and nurture each other every step along the way.
