OUR PRESIDENT, Sudie Landry
Welcome to our website. The Writers' Guild of Acadiana is now 30 years old and GROWING. We meet the last Tuesday of each month at 7 P.M. in Barnes & Noble 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. Our membership fee is $30.00 a year for new members. Thereafter member fees are $25.00 a year. Family membership is $15.00 per member. Membership fees are due on January 1 of each year. When you become a member you will receive "La Plume," our monthly newsletter.
Our agenda usually features a guest speaker one month and a member reading program the next month. Each reader is given a five minute time limit. We start at 7 p.m. and usually end around 8:30 p.m. Barnes & Noble closes at 10, so there is extra time for mingling after the meeting is over.
Find a seat, relax and get ready for an interesting and motivational night. Our monthly speakers come in a variety of categories; published authors, illustrators, poets, historians, children's authors, motivational speakers, travel writers, bloggers, writers of memoirs, and more....
We are looking forward to meeting you! Please bring a friend and help us spread the news. WGA will encourage you and spur the imagination waiting in you to develop.
