In July we held our Shreveport Writers Club Meeting at Rick’s Records. There, Rick gave us a pep talk about how to follow our dreams as writers. He also told us not to listen to other critics or even our own negative thoughts when it came to our writing. Rick also shared his experiences with publishing traditionally and self-publishing. We want to thank Rick for sharing his space and, wisdom and experience with the group.
We also want to give a shout out to a couple of members who gave readings at the Agora Borealis this month. They did a great job and I hope they continue sharing their work.
