The Shreveport Writer’s Club met at the Broadmoor Branch Library in Shreveport, Louisiana. We had quite a few people attend the November meeting and even had a new visitor.
We took time to remember our club member, Carlos Colon, who passed away. He will forever be remembered and missed by us, but his haikus will go on forever.
Our topics for our flash writing exercise were: “A great/terrible trip”, “Pride”, “I really admire…”, “Holiday Shenanigans” and Topic of Choice. These random topics make writing for ten minutes a challenge. We get a lot of great and entertaining written works from them.
The Round Robin ends our meetings where members can read excerpts of their work. We had six members share their work and we were all grateful to hear their hard work.
Our Writer’s Medley has been moved to February. This is a public event where members of good standing can read their work and out loud. There will be limited slots, so keep a look out for when we open them in January.
There has been an increased interest in the Critique Groups. We have added an extra one for a Friday each month. Thank you to our Vice-President Lela for spear-heading that for us.
This years Holiday party will be at Broadmoor Presbyterian Church. The address is 1915 Grover Place, Shreveport, Louisiana 71105. It will be on December 3rd, 11am-1pm. Everyone bring finger foods and an original Holiday or winter themed work to share. (Remember that this replaces our December Club meeting).
