OUR PRESIDENT, Sudie Landry
Welcome to our website! The Writers' Guild of Acadiana is now 26 years old and GROWING! We meet the last Tuesday of every month at Barnes & Noble at 7pm, in the back portion of the store. Barnes & Noble is located at 5705 Johnston Street. Come check us out! The first two visits are free and our yearly membership fee is $30.00 a year with a bookbag. The second year membership fee is $25.00 for the year. If you like to read, write or just listen to good stories, then this is the day and time to mark on your calendar.
Once you become a member, you will receive a monthly newsletter called "La Plume". Our agenda features guest speaker one month and member reading night the next month. Each member is given a five minute time limit. We find that five minutes allows plenty of time to share our various talents in writing. This is done in rotation throughout the year and is something good for all interests. We start at 7pm, and usually end around 8:30pm. Barnes & Noble closes at 10pm, so there is lots of extra time for mingling after the meeting is over with WGA members or just browsing for a good book afterwards.
We are your one stop information place to be monthly! Get a cup of coffee or a drink from the Barnes & Noble Cafe', and head to the back of the store. Grab a chair, relax and get ready for a interesting and motivational night. You will be among like minded people. Our monthly guest will come from a variety of categories. We have had and will have, published authors, soon to be new authors in print, Illustrators, Poets, Poetess, Historians, Children Authors, Inspirational Stories, Historical Fiction, Christian Fiction, Documentaries, Motivational Speakers, Film Documentaries, Movie Documentaries, Travel Writer, bloggers and more....
We look forward to meeting you! Bring a friend and help spread the news!
WGA will encourage Y O U.....
