Limerick Funzies

Hey, writer! You have a right to write for funzies!

And through St. Patrick’s Day—March 17, 2022—we’ll be highlighting limericks written by SWC members, Facebook page members, and friends.

Submit yours on the SWC Facebook page for approval and posting. If you’re not on Facebook, email to shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com. We will also be sharing this to our blog.

What defines a limerick is easily found in Wikipedia and via Google, but see the image for a famous example that’s well done and Louisiana appropriate.

Below, you will also find a limerick—of sorts—written especially for this SWC event. It is not intended as a model! But we do encourage you to mind the helpful guidelines it provides.

“They may be rude, ribald, bawdy, risqué
But on Facebook, the rules do rule the day
The joke need not be naughty
And can’t be mean or snotty
But a limerick should make somebody pay”

Seriously, folks…keep it kind, but snarky is fine.

Now, let’s see your funny bone!

Shreveport Writers Club Meeting and Special Announcement

This Saturday, we will be holding our SWC meeting at Broadmoor Library from 10am-12pm.

Our member, Ken Shively will be speaking to us about historical fiction and how he does research for his writings.

I also want to announce that we have two officer openings. The first is our secretary position is open and we are looking for someone who is willing take over our social media posts. This includes our blog, instagram, twitter, and facebook pages. They would also take minutes from each meeting and update them on our blog.

Our second open position is for president. I have enjoyed leading this group for a few years and seeing us grow and branch out in the community. This time, I believe the club would benefit with some new ideas and leadership. This position includes leading the officers, organizing events for the club, continuing networking for the club, and scheduling the meetings. You would have a supportive team to assist you and club members willing to help with ideas.

If you are interested in any of these positions, please email us at shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com. We will talk about these positions at our next meeting and if anyone is available that is interested this Saturday, we will take a vote.

SWC Informal Chat Zoom Meeting

Hello Writers!
During our last regular meeting several members expressed a desire that we resume the informal “writer’s chat” virtual meetings.

The informal meetings are just that. There’s no set agenda or club business to discuss; it’s just writers talking about writing. This meeting will also serve as a critique meeting as well. If you have a short piece of writing to share with the group and are looking for supportive feedback, you are welcome to bring that to the virtual meeting.

The Writers Chat will be a Zoom virtual meeting on Tuesday, March 23rd at beginning at 7:00 PM. The meeting is scheduled to last two hours, but writers are welcome to come and go as they choose from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

An email with the link and passcodes will be sent to members prior to the meeting.

Those interested in Shreveport Writers Club may contact the club at shreveportwritersclub.com for information about becoming a member and joining the email list.
