The Shreveport Writers club held its regular June meeting on June 5th via Zoom.

The meeting began with greeting members and guests, then continued as the club acknowledged members who had submitted work or had work published in the last month.

The club also discussed whether to continue the virtual-only meetings, if in-person meetings should begin or if there should be a combination of virtual/in-person meetings. It was decided that placing a poll on the website and the Facebook group page was the best way to find out what the majority of members preferred.

With that in mind, please take a moment to record an answer to the poll below:

The club also heard a report from Club Treasurer, Ken Shively, on the club’s club’s current bank balance.

Members discussed various ways for the club and club members to participate in local events, such as poetry and spoken word gatherings, as well as other functions to promote the club and the new anthology.

Members also participated in the Flash Writing Exercise, ten minutes of writing on any topic or one of these prompts:

  1. I am a plant parent
  2. Nostalgic cartoons
  3. Life in a bubble
  4. I’ve been giving three wishes

Members who wished to, shared their ten-minute writes with the group.

In the Writer’s Spotlight: Author DL Holmes shared his insights on battling Imposter Syndrome and being authentic in one’s writing. A lively and informative discussion followed.

The next meeting for Shreveport Writers Club will be the month critique meeting on June 19th from 10 am until 12 noon. This meeting will be a virtual meeting. A Zoom link will be sent to members on the email list prior to the meeting.

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.
