The Writer’s Den is a community of student writers from all sides of campus. We believe that stories are important, and our goal is to encourage people to tell their stories. We go about that in a couple of different ways: our on campus programming, including weekly meetings and social events, among other things; and our volunteering program, which allows us to share our love for writing and storytelling with students at underserved schools around Los Angeles.

Skippy Dies by Paul Murray
“If killing your protagonist with more than 600 pages to go sounds audacious, it’s nothing compared with the literary feats Murray pulls off in this hilarious, moving and wise book. Recently named to the Man Booker Prize long list, “Skippy Dies” is an epic crafted around, of all things, a pack of 14-year-old boys. It’s the “Moby-Dick” of Irish prep schools.”
-from Jess Walter’s review on the Washington Post
suggestion made by vice pres. Eva Wetzel
“Join me, if you dare, on an epic journey of prescription drug abuse, M-theory, Celtic myths, World War I, jelly doughnuts, and crying over this amazing book.”
