September Shreveport Writer’s Club Meeting

In September, we got together at the Broadmoor Branch Library for the Shreveport Writer’s Club Meeting.

september meeting

One of our member’s, John, led a Writer’s Spotlight on the importance of writing structure.  He also gave us advice on how it is important for the writer to take care of themselves.  Sometimes when we are in the midst of writing, we can lose track of ourselves.  Remembering to take care of ourselves during our writing time will help us to be even better writers.

This Saturday, October 7th, we will be holding our meeting at the Broadmoor Branch Library.  Our member, Deondre, will be leading the Writer’s Spot Light.

On October 8th, Sunday, there will be a Literary Event by Fluer De Lit at Broadmoor Library.  The club will have a table there and members are encouraged to come by and share and sell their work.  Also, come out to meet the contributors of the literary magazine.  The event will be from 1pm-3pm.

On October 19th, Thursday, we will be having our Writer’s Medley from 4:30pm-6:30pm.  This will be held at the Main Shreve Memorial Library Branch downtown.  Members, in good standing, will be able to share their works with the public.  There are 5 minute and 20 minute spots.  If you know that you will need a spot in between that time slot, please let us know.  You can let us know that you want to participate and the time you need by e-mailing us at shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com.  If you would like the template for the flyer to promote, please e-mail us.

The Anthology is going through its final stages.  Thank you for the patience, for we would like to make sure that we put our best foot forward with this project.

We appreciate all those who were able to make it to September’s meeting and we hope to see you this Saturday.

Remember, that visitors are always welcomed.

Bring some work to share with us and remember to, “Write on!”

May Shreveport Writer’s Club Meeting

image

We welcomed May the first Saturday of the month with a club meeting.  The members of The Shreveport Writer’s Club met at Broadmoor Library to network, talk and get inspiration from the other members.

Our President gave a great presentation on how writer’s should own their work.  He reminded us that we are not a product, but an audience.  As writer’s we should write what we want to write instead of trying to please every single person.  John also encouraged us to keep control of our work instead of letting others control it.  He also told us, when working with others, to keep true to our work and not to apologize  for it.  These statements of course led to an open discussion to where all members were encouraged to share their own opinions and experiences.

One of our members got to promote a literary magazine that she and some colleagues have put together.  It is called “Fleur de Lit Literary Magazine”.  They are currently taking submissions with the theme of “Female Friendship”.  This is open to writers in Caddo, Bossier, Desoto, Red River and Webster Parishes.  The deadline is June 30, 2017.  You can learn more at http://www.facebook.com/fleurdelit.

Three members participated in our Round Robin.  Two members shared excerpts from their stories and one member shared a poem by Bill Conley.  The poem was much appreciated, as we will all miss him.

At our next meeting we will have an assigned topic for Round Robin.  That topic will be “Purple”.  Come up with your best written work to share with us.

We want members to remember that Shreveport Writer’s Club t-shirts can be ordered online at teespring.com.  Just type in Shreveport Writer’s Club and it will take you directly to the shirt.

There will be meet-ups coming soon.  Keep a look out on Facebook and our other social media for those dates.

It is almost June and the election for officers is upon us.  If you would like to nominate yourself or someone please send us the information at shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com.

June is also the month to pay dues.  Dues are $20.00 and can be paid for on Paypal.  There is a link on our page.  When paying for dues on Paypal please make sure to add your name and e-mail address.  This way we will know who it is coming from and if we need to add you to our e-mail list.

June 3rd is our next meeting at Broadmoor Library in Shreveport, Louisiana.  It will be held from 10am-12pm.  We look forward to seeing you there and visitors are always welcome!

Remember to “Write on!”
