Welcome to WGA – a wonderful community of published and unpublished local writers who come together each month to celebrate the art of writing. We aim to create a warm and supportive environment where we can all learn and grow in our craft.
At WGA, we're passionate about providing a robust support system for all our members. This means exciting networking opportunities, engaging workshops, and inspiring talks from motivational speakers. Our monthly gatherings are a true highlight, where we take turns hosting guest speakers one month and enjoying member readings the next.
So whether you're an experienced writer or just starting, you'll find a welcoming home here at WGA, where your passion for writing can flourish.
Our meetings are free and open to the general public. We meet on the last Tuesday of each month (except December) at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library, Louisiana. Meeting time is 6:00-7:30 PM.
Our September 26th gathering is all about celebrating our talented members.
We invite you to bring your literary creations to the forefront and share them with fellow attendees. Each reader will have a delightful five-minute window to captivate us with their words.
Our September Prompt: "Hurricane Watch."
This is your chance to create within the captivating realm of memoirs or real events.
Entries should be typed, double-spaced, and no longer than 500 words. Your work should start with the title, word count, author’s name, and the competition's date at the top of the first page. If you attend, you can have another member read your piece. When judging is complete, submit a paper copy of the winning and runner-up pieces to the president. We kindly request that all entries be free from iPhones or other electronic devices.
Let's unite for a memorable evening filled with literary marvels and musical delights. Your stories, poems, songs, and unique voices add to our community's vibrant tapestry. Get ready to immerse yourself in creativity, connection, and the joy of shared artistry. See you there!
