Native American Monthly Writers Group

Since 2012, the Native American Monthly Writers Group has hosted over a hundred indigenous writers and has cultivated numerous film and television scripts.

The Native American MONTHLY WRITERS GROUP is a literary gathering that takes place monthly in Los Angeles, CA. This initiative provides an opportunity for professional actors to read scenes from the writer/participants’ original scripts, receive constructive feedback from other Native American writer/participants, and meet members of the Native American community. The group meets every last Saturday of each month online (unless otherwise noted). For more information regarding participation please email contact@laskinsfest.com
