we host literary events

online and in los angeles

Sevilla Writers House aims to broaden access to creative writing education and make literature and poetry cool again. We call ourselves a writers house because we offer a patchwork of services that unite under this mission. Sevilla offers editing services for those writing books, coordinates tours for those who already have, and hosts events to celebrate the whole process.

We look forward to writing with you!

On the second Sunday of every month, find us in Los Feliz for an evening of readings and whiskey. Specialty cocktails are created specifically for the event and inspired by our performers.

what our writers are saying

"Lyndsay is a genuine and enthusiastic editor. She is insightful and offers thoughtful feedback. Her knowledge of structure, grammar, and style was so helpful in shaping my book into the one I had envisioned. She truly cares about her work and the people she works with. She intuitively seemed to find the areas I had doubts about and offered helpful suggestions and clarity without being presumptuous."

REBECCA PORTELLA

"Lyndsay has helped edit numerous papers of mine, from grad school application essays to papers for my doctorate's degree. She provided prompt feedback and helped me become more creative in my writing style. I have taken her notes and suggestions and applied them to my other work. She is very professional and I will definitely be using her for my future writing and publications!"

JESSICA POPHAM

"I came to Lyndsay unsure. Unsure about my book topic, unsure about my writing voice, and unsure about my outline. With a sincere level of interest and insightful experience, she turned my uncertainty into excitement and confidence."

KRISTINE KELLY

"Incredible! In everything, from the virtual conference to book and career coaching, Sevilla has shown me enriching perspectives on my work and brilliant ideas to organize and elevate my characters, sentences, plots, and story-arcs."
