The Shreveport Writer’s Club met for their regular monthly meeting on April 6th at Shreve Memorial Library–Broadmoor branch.

After greeting visitor, Jim, Jade and Ron, the club awarded a Making the Mark award to Ken Shively, who shared his work in a genealogy group.  The Making the Mark award is to recognize members who have submitted work to contests or publications in the previous month.

Next the writers participated in the Flash Writing Exercise. They were invited to write for ten minutes on one of these topics:

  • April showers bring…
  • I suddenly became a mind reader
  • A child’s trip to the store
  • a rabbit, an egg and the full moon
  • open topic

Next, the writers discussed business including the upcoming Writer’s Medley. The date was previously confirmed, but a scheduling conflict with the venue was discovered. The date for the next Writer’s Medley is still being determined. The writers also discussed asking a visual artist to collaborate with the group. The idea being to produce writing pieces that correspond or respond to the art.

Finally, the group participated in the Round Robin portion of the meeting. Here members are given the opportunity to share a piece of their work. Since there were a few extra minutes left in the meeting, the writers added some critique time as well.

NOTE: The next regularly schedule Critique Group meeting has been cancelled due to the Easter holiday.

The next regular meeting of Shreveport Writer’s Club will be May 4th, beginning at 11 am, at the Hamilton/South Caddo Branch of Shreve Memorial Library, 2111 W Bert Kouns Industrial Loop, Shreveport, LA 71118
