In July we held our Shreveport Writers Club Meeting at Rick’s Records. There, Rick gave us a pep talk about how to follow our dreams as writers. He also told us not to listen to other critics or even our own negative thoughts when it came to our writing. Rick also shared his experiences with publishing traditionally and self-publishing. We want to thank Rick for sharing his space and, wisdom and experience with the group.
We also want to give a shout out to a couple of members who gave readings at the Agora Borealis this month. They did a great job and I hope they continue sharing their work.
On August 4th, Saturday, we will be meeting at the Broadmoor Library. From 10am-12pm, come out to work on flash writing, have a discussion with us and share some of the work you’ve been focusing on.
We will also be giving an update on the secretarial position.
Visitors are always welcomed and remember to “Write on!”.
This Saturday, there will be a Critique Group at Broadmoor Library. From 10-12pm, bring your written work to have members listen to or hear parts that you are working on. Also come by to be an ear and support for others.
Always remember to “Write on”!

I want to thank everyone who came to the last meeting. We held our officer elections after our president, John, and our vice-preseident, Lela, stepped down.
We are all appreciative of the work that they put into the club. They both stepped up during a time when the club needed them.
Now, I have some big shoes to fill as I was nominated and voted in for president. Please, let me know what I can do for you. Also, please share with me ways that you believe we can get our club more out into the public.
Deondre, is also thankful for the nomination and vote for vice-president. He will also be willing to work with the club in anyway.
With me takinging on the president position, this means that the secretary position is open to anyone willing to take this on.
This position will include taking on the main social media responsibilities. It includes taking on postings for Instagram, Twitter, Google+, WordPress and Facebook.
I will be more than happy to assist you with the transition. Please comment below if you are interested or if you would like to nominate someone.
Thank you again and “Write on!”
