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.

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.
