Special Speaker Events
Overview

Special Speaker Events (SSE) presented by the Greater Los Angeles Writers Society offer a wealth of educators, nationally-known authorities, industry experts, agents, publishers and famous authors. It is a terrific opportunity to learn about the craft and business of writing from the best voices of the day.

While GLAWS sometimes focuses on specific genres, most topics are broad-based and provide valuable information for all writers. (Pictured below is Ray Bradbury addressing a SRO attendance in the room dedicated to him at the Palms-Rancho Park Library.)

Special Speaker Event Audience at the Greater Los Angles Writers Society GLAWS welcomes writers of all genres of writing and levels of expertise. We also welcome those who support the writing community whether you're an industry professional or fan of writing. Admission is always free. Non-members, please register/check-in at the door to receive a guest badge. RSVP for preferred seating.
