Yearly dues are $25. Once a member, you will receive our monthly newsletter, "La Plume," which will be emailed. It contains valuable information about tips on writing, upcoming events, workshops, and WGA news.
Meetings are open to the public, and typically held at the South Regional Branch of the Library, 6101 Johnston, Laf, LA. Our agenda usually features a guest speaker one month and a member reading program the next month. We start at 6 p.m. and usually end around 7:30 p.m.
Guests are encouraged. Find a seat, relax, and prepare for an interesting and motivational night. Our monthly speakers come in various 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.
