About Us

The Road Less Written logoThe Road Less Written is an association of writers helping writers. Originally founded in San Francisco as the Redwoods Society, we aim to promote and exchange ideas, techniques, insight, and interests of those experiencing the writing life.

As writers seeking to better our craft and to find our individual path, niche, and voice, we help each other along the Road Less Written. We not only hope you enjoy our blog, we hope you’ll pipe in! Comment, share, and even send us your ideas for guest posts.
