The Writers Grotto is a community of working writers and narrative artists who connect in physical and virtual space, pooling our talents to support each other, mentor and teach others, and engage the wider world. based in downtown San Francisco, The Grotto fosters a literary culture that is generous in spirit and deeply inclusive, elevating writers of all backgrounds.
Today, the Grotto has a roster of more than 120 authors, journalists, fiction writers, filmmakers, poets and other “narrative artists,” as we now describe ourselves. Our original hypothesis – that community nurtures productivity – has proven abundantly true. As we prepare to enter our third decade, the steady stream of books, articles, feature films, television series, short stories, poems and essays born here shows no signs of letting up.
