Next month the SWC is changing things up just a bit. We have a special guest! Maple Sudds, author of No Blood in the Turnip:Memoirs of a Codependent, will read selections from her book and hold a question and answer session afterward.
This meeting is at a special time: 11:00 am. It is also in a special place: Shreve Memorial Library–Hamilton/South Caddo Branch, 2111 W Bert Kouns Industrial Loop, Shreveport. The meeting will be held in their lovely reading room. We’re really hoping this open area will invite people in to join us, to hear Maple and to find out what Shreveport Writers Club is all about.
Mark your calendars for this special event!

It’s March and tomorrow we will be holding our Shreveport Writer’s Club Meeting. For this month and April we will be holding it at the Broadmoor Presbyterian Church. The building is located on 1915 Glover Place, Shreveport, LA 71105. It will be from 10am-12pm. Make sure to bring pens and pencils, for our flash writing exercise. Also, bring a sample of some of your work to share during our Round Robin at the end.
During our Feburary meeting, we were honored to have author Katie Bickham as our speaker. She shared work from her poetry book, “The Belle Mar”.
Katie likes to write poetry with historic background with settings around the world. Some of the poetry from her book has settings as far as the 1800’s.
“The Belle Mar” is set on a plantation in Louisiana from the 1811-2005. The characters are also diversed. The poetry is told through characters with different social and economical backgrounds.
Bickham writes her poetry, so that it is accessible to readers. She finds that it is a great tool for story-telling. With her story-telling, she finds that it is also importamt to perform well. Katie believes it is a great way to reach audiences. Katie also shared her researching habits and how to work with traditional publishing.
We want to thank Katie Bickham for coming to speak with us. She gave us great insight about traditional publishing in poetry.
At the next meeting we will be talking about the upcoming April Writer’s Medley.
We are also going to be holding our Officer elections in June. Dues will also be due.
Come out and enjoy the company of fellow writers and those who are inspiring to write.
Keep up with your awesomeness and remember to “Write on”!
Reminder for this Saturday’s meeting at Broadmoor Library, 10 am to noon.
Guest presenter will be Katie Bickham, who will be sharing her poetry with us and doing a Q&A.
Hope to see you all there! Write on!
The Shreveport Writer’s Club met earlier this month to share holiday festivity. Members shared written holiday works and enjoyed a potluck filled with yummy treats.
We want to thank all those who have been involved with the club this year. So many new people have been met and some old faces have returned. Next year we will continue to grow and we want to hear from you. Let us know what we as a club can do for you. Also, if you know of anyone who would like to be a speaker or help with a workshop let us know.
Our next meeting will be Janurary 6th at the Broadmoor Branch Library from 10am-12pm. Visitors are always welcomed.
We hope you have a Happy New Year and remember to “Write on!”
