Our next WGA meeting is Tuesday, July 27, 2021. We meet at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library. This will be a members read meeting. Paid members can bring their work and read aloud to the attendees up to 5-minutes, to share what they have done or are working on. There is also a prompt competition. March prompt category is Fiction, and the phrase is, "This time things will be different."
WGA Goal Diggers is taking a break. The new WGA critique group will have its next meet on
March 9, 2020, 6:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble bookstore. Members are invited to bring their works in progress for critique. All attendees may offer constructive criticism to bolster and improve our writing skills.
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. We plan to resume meeting at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library, and meets are open to the public. To win door prizes and receive the monthly WGA newsletter La Plume, you must be a member.
