November Meeting

The Shreveport Writers Club held their regular monthly meeting at 10 am on Saturday, November 3rd. This month the writers met at Retro 521 Cafe in Bossier City.

Club President, Tiffany Pennywell, welcomed visitors and members. The first order of business was presenting the “Making a Mark” awards. Members who submitted any piece of writing to any publication are given a commemorative writing pen as encouragement. Writers this month “making a mark” were M. L. Dumars and Loretta Casteen.

The group then moved on to the Flash Writing Exercise. The writers were asked to write on any of these topics:

  1.  I didn’t know my daughter knew the queen…
  2. A baker, a ballerina, and the ultimate ninja…
  3. He looked me straight in the eye and said…
  4. The turkey was almost done, but…
  5. Open topic

After members shared their writing, the group moved on to other business.
