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”!
It’s fall and Halloween is around the corner🎃! Do you have any self written work pertaining to fall and/or Halloween that you’d like to be shared on or FB group and blog? Please send submissions to email@example.com and keep a look out for your work to appear.

The next Critique Group meeting will meet at the Broadmoor Library, Study Room B, on September 21st, 2019 from 10 am until noon. You are invited to bring a short piece of writing to share or you may simply attend and give helpful, constructive advice to others.
On Sunday, August 4th, 2019 marked the opening of “Paired Expressions: Visual and Lyrical Art,” a collaboration between artists and writers from the Shreveport Writers Club and the Shreveport Art Club.
Shreveport Writers Club members were tasked with sending poetry in to Shreveport Art Club members. The visual artists created artwork inspired by the poems. In turn, the visual artists then asked the writers to respond to their art pieces.
The resulting “paired expressions” are on display through August 23rd at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum,3015 Greenwood Rd in Shreveport Louisiana.
Many thanks to the Shreveport Art Club for helping to make this exciting exhibit happen! Thanks to all the writers and visual artists for their contributions. There wouldn’t be a show without you!
