IMG_20180405_000152_825

REMINDER!
Next Tuesday we will be hosting the Writers Medley at Bon Temps Coffee Bar. Current members of the club will be sharing their creative work with the public.

This is an all ages event that is free to the public. Bring guests and remember visitors are always welcomed.

We still have open slots for the event for anyone who is interested in being a part of it. There are 5 minute and 20 minute slots. If you just need 10 minutes then that is okay as well. You can read any of your own written work. It can be in any format or genre.
Please contact us at shreveportwritersclub@gmail.com .

If you do not have anything to share please come by to support fellow members. They work hard on their pieces to present them. It also lifts their spirits and encourages them to see you there.

2nd REMINDER
This Saturday we will be holding our Shreveport Writers Club meeting from 10am-12pm. Due to lack of available space we will be holding it at Broadmoor Presbyterian Church 1915 Grover Place, Shreveport, Louisiana 71105.

Thank you all for being a part of this amazing group. We hope to see you at both events.
And remember to “Write on!”

It’s March and tomorrow we will be holding our Shreveport Writer’s Club Meeting. For this month and April we will be holding it at the Broadmoor Presbyterian Church. The building is located on 1915 Glover Place, Shreveport, LA 71105. It will be from 10am-12pm. Make sure to bring pens and pencils, for our flash writing exercise. Also, bring a sample of some of your work to share during our Round Robin at the end.

During our Feburary meeting, we were honored to have author Katie Bickham as our speaker. She shared work from her poetry book, “The Belle Mar”.20180203_104724

Katie likes to write poetry with historic background with settings around the world. Some of the poetry from her book has settings as far as the 1800’s.

“The Belle Mar” is set on a plantation in Louisiana from the 1811-2005. The characters are also diversed. The poetry is told through characters with different social and economical backgrounds.

Bickham writes her poetry, so that it is accessible to readers. She finds that it is a great tool for story-telling. With her story-telling, she finds that it is also importamt to perform well. Katie believes it is a great way to reach audiences. Katie also shared her researching habits and how to work with traditional publishing.

We want to thank Katie Bickham for coming to speak with us. She gave us great insight about traditional publishing in poetry.

At the next meeting we will be talking about the upcoming April Writer’s Medley.

We are also going to be holding our Officer elections in June. Dues will also be due.

Come out and enjoy the company of fellow writers and those who are inspiring to write.

Keep up with your awesomeness and remember to “Write on”!
