November Meeting and Updates

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).

For those interested in joining The Shreveport Writer’s Club, you can now join from our blog. There’s a link to join by PayPal. Please remember to leave your name and contact info so that we can add you to our e-mail list.

A reminder to all members: If you would like anything posted that is Club related to the other social sites please send that info to shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com. This includes events, pictures or anything Club related you would like to share.

We hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and remember to “Write on”!

November Critique Groups

A reminder that the Shreveport Writer’s Club will have a Critique Group tomorrow at the Broadmoor Presbyterian Church in Shreveport, Louisiana from 6pm-8pm.
There is also another Critique Group on Saturday at the Broadmoor Branch Library in Shreveport, Louisiana from 10am-12pm.
At both critiques you can bring your own work and have it heard by others there. They are there to give advice on whatever you want to be critiqued on. Even if you do not have work, you are welcome to come and do critiquing yourself. It’s always wonderful to be able to help fellow writers.
As always, “Write on!”
