The Diamond Valley Writers' Guild is the home for writers in the Inland Empire of Southern California. It was formed in 2015 by a couple dozen locals who wanted to hang out with other people who love writing.


In non-pandemic times, we meet on the fourth Saturday of each month from January - October at the Hemet Public Library. For the duration of the pandemic, we'll be meeting on Zoom. To request a link to the upcoming meeting, please email Meetings begin at 9:30 am and end at 11:30.
