For a limited time, new members joining the Sacramento Branch of the California Writers Club (CWC) will receive a free premium offering ― Grant Faulkner’s hardbound book, PEP Talks for Writers. Join by September 30 to claim your copy!
It’s just one resource to advance your writing resume as you begin your journey with the state’s most historic writing community, a statewide non-profit going back more than a hundred years.
The Sacramento Writers group, CWC’s first expansion chapter and more than 92 years old itself, holds monthly meetings with renowned speakers on the writing craft, marketing your work, and practicing your pitch to agents.
This free gift of “52 Insights and Actions to Boost Your Creative Mojo,” written by the executive director of National Novel Writing Month (NanNoWriMo), will show you ways to banish your inner editor, dive into your work with creative abandon, write boldly on the page, and develop your self-confidence.

The club offers two main categories of membership: Active Membership for published writers, and Associate Membership for aspiring writers – both at $65 ($45 in annual dues and a one-time set-up fee of $20).

CWC Sacramento Branch is raking in the harvest this year to bring a special gift to the children in the Sacramento area. As writers, we know the greatest gift anyone could give is the joy of reading. Whether a picture-book or traditional rendering, what a warm and fuzzy feeling only a book can bring.
We have selected UC Davis Children’s Hospital to receive this year’s gift. We are asking for your help by donating new and gently used books for preschool through middle-school aged children.
