A Great HOSTS

I’m proud of the Shreveport Writers Club members that did readings today at HOSTS. We had a great time also watching the dancers from The Gems Dance Company and we were immersed with art from Kalandra Kyelle Jones and Adam King . We also appreciate the members that came out in support. Thank you!!

June Meeting

We will be meeting at the Broadmoor Branch Library on June 4th from 10am-12pm.
We will discuss the HOSTS event on June 12th.
Bring any work you would like to have a simple and short critique on during our round robin.
If you would like to share a small piece or excerpt without a critique, that is fine as well.
You do not have to bring in writing to be a part of the meeting. Having fellowship with fellow writers or those interested is our goal.

SWC April Meeting

On April 2nd, we will be holding our club meeting at the Shreve Memorial Library Broadmoor Branch from 10am-12pm.
We will focus on flash writing, casual critiquing, and a discussion on storytelling led by ML Dumar.
Meet in Study Room A and bring a sample of some of your work if you would like to get a general overview on it. You don’t have to bring work to have critiqued. Just listening and discussing others’ work is as beneficial to learning and growing as well.
This is a casual writer’s support group here to connect local writers with other writers.
*There is a $20 yearly fee for the group (It helps pay for Zoom for online club meetings, future contests, and club activities.)
Visitors are always welcome to the meetings to see if this club is a beneficial group to your writing journey.
We hope to see you there and always remember to “write on”!
