Special Speaker Events

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.

Short Story Market

A Virtual Event
Link coming soon...

Saturday 2:30
PM Pacific Time

Some say the market for short stories is dead; others say it's brighter than ever due to the proliferation of E-magazines and podcasts. In terms of short stories the main literary markets are literary magazines, anthologies, contests, and non-literary publications, including "genre" (SF/F/H, Mystery, Western, Romance) that feature short stories.

A panel of writers will discuss their experiences, the market as they see it, and where the new opportunities lie in wait. They will also dust off their crystal balls and tea leafs to offer perspective on where the publishing industry maybe headed in the future.

It will be followed by a Q&A segment.

This important topic is of interest to all aspiring, active and accomplished writers. No matter what you are writing, or where you live, this is an event you should attend! This is a free virtual presentation via Zoom.
