Purpose

There’s an influx of new authors to serve on the Coast as well as our solid base. There’s a new generation of young authors and publishers to pass on the blue pencil to and retirees, who are ready to lay their astonishing memoirs at our feet if they can just get going on it.

We are a magnet for creative souls on the Coast. We may not know exactly why, but it’s almost mandatory that you’re a potter, painter or writer to live here. We have our ensemble of diverse voices, and within it there are cozy groups organically and beautifully forming.
