A Message from the President

As Central Coast Writers president, I'm very excited about CCW and look forward to continuing to be a part of a wonderful board and a wonderful organization. During my time as president, I hope to establish partnerships with other like-minded organizations in the community, such as libraries, book clubs, book stores and non-profits. I would also like to work toward greater communication between our organization and other Northern California writers' clubs. If possible, I would like to create a follow-up workshop with one of our guest speakers. Lastly, I hope to create a speakers' bureau that we use to go to other organizations and speak about CCW. It's an ambitious agenda, but why not dream big!

Vanessa Diffenbaugh: How to write a page-turner

When drafting her debut novel, The Language of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh aimed to write a book that readers wouldn’t be able to put down. It stayed on the New York Times best sellers list for 50 weeks and was translated into more than 40 languages. At our January meeting the author will offer tips on how to write a page-turner.

Diffenbaugh is a Californian, born in San Francisco and raised in Chico. Graduating from Stanford, she worked in the non-profit sector, teaching art and technology to youth in low-income communities. Following the success of her novel, she co-founded Camellia Network, a non-profit whose mission is to connect every youth aging out of foster care to the critical resources and support needed to thrive in adulthood. She lives in Monterey, CA.
