Events & Updates

Upcoming events:

Our next WGA meeting is Tuesday, October 26, 2021 6:00 p.m. We meet at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library Auditorium. Our meeting will have a guest speaker, Alisha Vincent. A.L. Vincent is a teacher/writer who lives in the heart of Cajun Country. Born in Oklahoma, Vincent became fascinated with South Louisiana after reading Interview With the Vampire. Finally, she became a Cajun transplant in 2001. When not getting lost in a story line, Vincent can be found cooking or enjoying live local music.

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 door prizes and receive the monthly WGA newsletter La Plume, you must be a member.
