Our next WGA meeting is Tuesday, November 29, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. We meet at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library Auditorium. 

November is guest speaker month.   Matthew Miller fell in love with horror literature when he read the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe at eight years old. He began writing horror shortly thereafter. He currently has six completed horror novels and is working on a seventh. He holds a Master’s degree in Languages, and has taught English and foreign languages in both the US and in mainland China. He has

taught at UL, SLCC, LSUE, and the Haiyuan American University in Kunming, China. He is married with two cats who act as his children.

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 protected] 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.
