Welcome to our blog for writers in Los Angeles and beyond: The Official www.LAwritersgroup.com Blog, where we cover topics of interest to writers: Articles about writing, keeping you updated on what's going at our HQ, calls for submissions, no-fee contents, and a bit of LA-centric coolness.
Reminder! Our first and only 2010 West LA Writers group starts on Thursday. This is a great group for TV and screenwriters as well as fiction writers and poets. Read about our West LA Moderator: http://ow.ly/2HOO9
I can't help it. I know it's cheesy - but I love Du-par's on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City. I love the comfy red vinyl booths, I love the formica table tops. I love the pie.
No WiFi, but great coffee, breakfast all day, open 24 hours. Seriously, how can you go wrong? The last time I was in Du-par's I saw Percy Daggs III at the next table over. Always something cool going on at Du-par's.
