About Us

The Writers' Guild of Acadiana would normally 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, Lafayette, LA. We do not meet in December.

All meeting are suspended during the national situation.


The Guild has been in existence since the 1986, and many local published authors have been members. Of course, the meetings are open to the public, and guests are encouraged. 

The first two visits are free. Our membership fee is $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. It contains valuable information about tips on writing, upcoming events, workshops, and WGA news. 

Our agenda usually features a guest speaker one month and a member reading program the next month. Each reader is given a time limit. We start at 7 p.m. and usually end around 8:30 p.m.

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 you to develop.
