WWLA’s own Neela Banerjee is at the center of this fantastic LA Weekly article about turning LA into the center of the literary universe. 

We love the focus on the “Publish!” booth at the Grand Park Book Fest.

Neela’s WWLA Novel II class this spring still has a spot available!  Hit us up at writingworkshopsla@gmail.com if you’d like details or want to enroll.
