The WGA meets at 6PM on the last Tuesday of every month (except December) at the South Regional Branch Library, Auditorium. The address is 6101 Johnston St. Lafayette, LA
Our next meeting is June 27, 2023. We will have a guest speaker (Michelle Kreamer).
Dr. H. Michelle Kreamer is an Assistant Professor of Educational Curriculum and
Instruction at UL Lafayette. Prior to this, she was a high school English Language Arts
teacher. Dr. Kreamer serves as Site Director for the National Writing Project of
Acadiana (NWP-A) and enjoys engaging with students and teachers to support writing
and writing instruction. In this role, she works with students, teachers, and community
members through various writing events and initiatives. Though most of her writing is
currently academic in nature, she is continually inspired by the written word and
believes everyone is a writer!
WGA members have the opportunity to join us at Moncus Artisan market on the last Saturday of each month. We can bring our books and art to sell, and tell visitors about the Writers' Guild. Contact our secretary, Ed Gauthier, email@example.com for complete information and to schedule a day.
WGA book marks have been printed and are being distributed to all public libraries and many high school libraries. We hope these will bring interested readers to our guild.
WGA has published two anthologies of the winners of our contests in the categories of poetry, short fiction, and memoirs. We have one booklet covering 2012-2014, and one for 2017-2018. Future anthologies are planned as more members submit works and are awarded. We plan to feature the first and second place winners in future books.
We also have an outstanding WGA cookbook available for $5 each while supplies last.
Future WGA meetings are scheduled for the last Tuesday of each month, except December. To win contest prizes and receive the monthly WGA newsletter La Plume, you must be a member.
