March Meeting on Saturday

Our regular March meeting will be on Saturday, March 1, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Bossier Arts Council Annex.

We will have speaker Robyn Conley, Book Doctor presenting   “Self-Editing Without Self-Destructing” — a proven checklist of items to look for in any manuscript that have helped her clients become published.

Robyn has taught the mechanics of writing and publishing, as well as writing as a healing therapy at TCU, UTA, and hundreds of individual seminars around the country.

She also is a well-respected and sought-after freelance editor. For over twenty years Robyn has critiqued novels and book length non-fiction as well as articles, short stories and poetry collections, helping writers make their work marketable  throughout the various changes in publishing. Her clients have won contests and landed contracts with traditional publishers after hiring her red pen.

Hope to see you all there!

Write on!

SWC is looking for members to form and head a Special Events Committee.
Basically, we’re looking for things we can do outside of regular club meetings like contests open to the public, guest speakers, workshops, etc.
 
The SEC would be in charge of coordinating things with the Bossier Arts Council and other organizations in the area to arrange events for the group and the public.
 
If you are interested, please email us or let us know at an upcoming meeting.

Hello,

I’m with a new publication in Shreveport/Bossier called Metro Leader News. It’s a monthly paper that’s mailed directly to homes in our area, and I’m looking for freelance writers. Do you know of anyone who might be interested in writing articles targeted to Caddo, Bossier, Haughton and DeSoto parishes? Writers will be paid for solicited material.

Please let me know if you have anyone who would be interested. You can email me at
