Belonging to a comfortable, challenging, and convenient writing group is an amazing way to get a leg up in this industry. It isn't always easy to find. Every member needs an eagerness to help others and also discipline to bring in pages on a regular basis. When it works, it can facilitate confidence, security, and ambition in all involved. In 2018, Jolly Pig Project focused on two free writing groups at With Love Market & Cafe in their community room.

The 1st Group was dedicated to seasoned writers who need feedback from their peers on material generated at a steady clip. Meeting every two weeks on Monday evenings at 7:00 PM, writers took turns submitting pages one week before each meeting, and then used the time to troubleshoot issues with the script. Plays, pilots, specs, and screenplays were all viable submissions for critiques from the group. In 2019, JPP will continue to host this writing group. Our goal is to start an additional one on the West side of town beginning February 2019.

The 2nd Group was for anyone branching out into the world of writing. This bi-monthly meet-up was open to anybody with any level of writing experience. The third Tuesday of every other month centered around a different theme or writing element. We enjoyed meeting so many new writers! In 2019, JPP may still continue to host a few of these meetings a la carte throughout the year, but we found new writers were more successful seeking classes first.  Stay tuned here or on social media for announcements regarding these special salons!

All groups meet at

With Love Market & Cafe 1969 S Vermont Ave Los Angeles, CA 90007
