Sprints and Shares

Celebrating 40 Years of Romance in San Diego

Back in 1982, a group of like-minded writers began a journey to bring romance writing to America’s Finest City. Forty years later, and under the new title of Southern California Romance Writers, we still believe in those driving principles.

Come on out and get some words onto the page. We’ll be doing some writing sprints, getting feedback from our fellow writers and enjoying some delicious goodies in honor of our birthday!

You’ll get a chance to hang out with your inaugural SoCal Romance Writers Board and find out who will be receiving the Member of the Year award. Maybe a Barbara Faith recipient, too.

Hope to see you there!


Notice: As per California’s mandate (extended through February 15, 2022), masks will be required by all attendees (except when eating/drinking) regardless of vaccination status.

We have a new in-person venue! Meetings will be held in the morning in Room E12 at the Marina Village Conference Center. Click to view enlarged map in a new tab.
