We had a great Semptember Shreveport Writer’s Club meeting. The club had four new member sign ups. We would like to welcome Pat Riley, Doug Fowler, Gary Calliga and Kathleen Ward.
A good amount of people recieved the Making the Mark Award. Great job to all that did. Let’s keep on getting our work out there.
The flash writing exercise went very well. As always it gives us interesting and creative writings for us to listen to. Our topics were “Where should we eat”, “I wanted a goat, but…”, “A terrible idea…”, “The dog said…” and topic of choice.
The 80th Anniversary Anthology is still being worked on. Deondre has been reading through and editing the stories and poems that have been submitted. Right now submissions have been extended until the end of September. He is asking for work focused on the topic of “Things Yet To Come”. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be a Writer’s Medley on Saturday, 10/17/2015. It will be held at the Broadmoor Library from 12:00-2:00pm. If you are a member and would like to have a slot to read your works then contact John at email@example.com. Slots are limited.
