SLO NightWriters is the premier writing organization on the Central Coast of California. Founded as a non-profit in 1988, our mission is to advance quality writing, promote publication, and expand author recognition in a forum that nurtures a spirit of community for all its members.
SLO NightWriters members are both published and unpublished. We write literary fiction, genre fiction, poetry, memoir, nonfiction, newspaper and magazine articles, and much more.
Many of us live in San Luis Obispo County, California. We call our portion of paradise SLO.
We must arrange our schedules in imaginative ways in order to create our stories. Oftentimes that means writing during nighttime's quiet hours. Hence our organization's name, SLO NightWriters.
By way of our website we welcome people from all around the world to join our group.
