This literary arts center housed in Venice’s Old Town Hall has played a strong role in shaping the literary culture of Los Angeles since 1968. Its famed reading series has brought authors such as Allen Ginsburg, Raymond Carver, and Amiri Baraka over the years, and it continues to be a place to discover established and emerging authors, poets, and musicians. Pop in for a free workshop or reading, or peruse the onsite bookstore, which stocks titles from the Center’s own publishing imprint dedicated to experimental and alternative writing.
