Writers Guild Of Acadiana

"WGA is an organization made up of local writers, published and unpublished, who meet the last Tuesday of each month to share and gain knowledge in the craft of writing. The organization's goals are to provide a strong support system for our members, one that includes networking opportunities, continuing education, and encouragement. We also promote literacy in our community through our annual high school writing contest."

"We're a diverse group with members focused on fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, screen writing, or poetry. A guest speaker joins us every other month to share their knowledge of the craft of writing or the business of publishing within the group. On alternate months, we have member reading events, where our members are encouraged to read an excerpt of their work before their peers."


  1. That's cool. Didn't know we had one. Do you go to meetings?

  2. Hey Luke--sometimes, I'm at the bookstore and notice a meeting and just kind of hang out in the back. Will definitely try to go to them in the future.
