Shreveport Writers Club Meeting and Special Announcement

This Saturday, we will be holding our SWC meeting at Broadmoor Library from 10am-12pm.

Our member, Ken Shively will be speaking to us about historical fiction and how he does research for his writings.

I also want to announce that we have two officer openings. The first is our secretary position is open and we are looking for someone who is willing take over our social media posts. This includes our blog, instagram, twitter, and facebook pages. They would also take minutes from each meeting and update them on our blog.

Our second open position is for president. I have enjoyed leading this group for a few years and seeing us grow and branch out in the community. This time, I believe the club would benefit with some new ideas and leadership. This position includes leading the officers, organizing events for the club, continuing networking for the club, and scheduling the meetings. You would have a supportive team to assist you and club members willing to help with ideas.

If you are interested in any of these positions, please email us at shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com. We will talk about these positions at our next meeting and if anyone is available that is interested this Saturday, we will take a vote.

The Shreveport Writers club held its regular June meeting on June 5th via Zoom.

The meeting began with greeting members and guests, then continued as the club acknowledged members who had submitted work or had work published in the last month.

The club also discussed whether to continue the virtual-only meetings, if in-person meetings should begin or if there should be a combination of virtual/in-person meetings. It was decided that placing a poll on the website and the Facebook group page was the best way to find out what the majority of members preferred.

With that in mind, please take a moment to record an answer to the poll below:

The club also heard a report from Club Treasurer, Ken Shively, on the club’s club’s current bank balance.

Members discussed various ways for the club and club members to participate in local events, such as poetry and spoken word gatherings, as well as other functions to promote the club and the new anthology.

Members also participated in the Flash Writing Exercise, ten minutes of writing on any topic or one of these prompts:

  1. I am a plant parent
  2. Nostalgic cartoons
  3. Life in a bubble
  4. I’ve been giving three wishes

Members who wished to, shared their ten-minute writes with the group.

In the Writer’s Spotlight: Author DL Holmes shared his insights on battling Imposter Syndrome and being authentic in one’s writing. A lively and informative discussion followed.

The next meeting for Shreveport Writers Club will be the month critique meeting on June 19th from 10 am until 12 noon. This meeting will be a virtual meeting. A Zoom link will be sent to members on the email list prior to the meeting.
