Welcome to the Los Angeles Area EFA Chapter page. EFA-LA is open to all EFA members in the Los Angeles area. If you fall a little outside the area—from the desert to the sea—consider yourself welcome too.
SAVE THE DATE! Our next Zoom chapter meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 21 from 2-3:30 pm. We must limit our Zoom meetings to dues-paying members. If you’re not a member or haven’t renewed your membership, do so now. You don’t want to miss out on this meeting. There will be a presentation on permissions as well as breakout sessions for the first time. We will focus on two sessions, one for academic editing and the other for fiction editing. Bring your questions or share your expertise with your fellow attendees. Mark the date on your calendar. Stay tuned for the agenda and RSVP that you’ll be attending.
Our final meeting of the year will take place on December 9; it’ll be an outreach meeting with another organization. Mark your calendars. Details to follow.
UPDATE: As you may know, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will now be virtual because of the continuing pandemic. The wonderful thing is that you can enjoy the author panels and readings in the comfort of your own home. It will start on Sunday, October 18 and will run for four weeks (ending on November 13). The full panel is now available. Register to reserve a spot for the virtual Festival of Books author panels and readings. For 2021, it is hoped that the Festival of Books will take place April 17-18 at USC.
Earlier this year, we had two local coffee/lunch gatherings in the Westside and a few months later in Valencia. Another gathering will take place in the San Gabriel Valley (maybe Pasadena or Arcadia) as soon it’s allowed for a group to gather safely in person.
