The club incorporated in 1913 and chose the motto, “Sail On!” from Joaquin Miller’s poem, “Columbus." By 1915, the membership had grown and, along with London, Sterling and Whitaker, honorary members included Ina Coolbrith, Charles Lummis, Edwin Markham, WC Morrow, John Muir, Joaquin Miller and Charles Keeler. Today, California Writers Club has about 1,200 members in seventeen branches all around California. Marin branch was chartered with CWC in 1999 and has been meeting at Book Passage in Corte Madera ever since.
