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”!

Last Day for Limericks

We got another limerick in for our Limerick Challenge.

There once was a fellow in bossier
Who thought it was time for some closure
So he laid on the floor
Beneath an old door
And no one could see that he lay there

Limerick Challenge Entries

We will be posting the entries for our limerick challenge as they are sent to us. You have until March 17th to submit your entry.

Our first entry is by Tiffany Pennywell

Our 2nd entry is from Earnest McDaniel

There once was a couple quite average
The wife had the brains in the marriage
So she took him by hand
And explained to the man
Suffrage and vassalage…and leverage

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!
