Events & Updates

Upcoming events:

Our next WGA meeting is Tuesday, January 25, 2022 6:00 p.m. We meet at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library Auditorium. Our meeting will have a guest speaker, Michael Wynne. Mr. Wynne is current president of Author Club, an organization that focuses on providing practical advice to writers in the Alexandria area. He is in much demand as a speaker.

WGA Goal Diggers is taking a break. The new WGA critique group will announce its next meet soon. 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. To win contest prizes and receive the monthly WGA newsletter La Plume, you must be a member.
