Southern Christian Writers

Writing to Honor God

Southern Christian Writers Guild met on the north shore of New Orleans for more than a decade when the door opened to start a writers’ meeting on the west bank of New Orleans in the Gospel Bookstore, Westside Shopping center, 91 Westbank Expressway, Gretna LA 70053.

SCW meets the third Saturday of the month at 10:30 a.m. January – October and takes a holiday break in November and December.

We hold meetings in the Gospel Bookstore with a hybrid format. Writers can come to the store or join the meeting via ZOOM. The link to join the meeting on Zoom is in the SCW newsletter released one week before the meeting. Subscribe to the SCW newsletter to receive access to the Zoom meetings or email to request the link.

  1. Treehouse Publishers is sponsoring an author expo in Picayune MS. This is a great opportunity for writers to exhibit and sell their books as well as to get to know other Mississippi and Louisiana authors. Please visit for complete details. Dr. June Knight will be live streaming personal interviews with each author.

    We are very excited about this rare opportunity for dynamic exposure of talented Mississippi and Louisiana authors. Thank you for sharing this information to all who may have an interest.


    • Yes, we have out of state members. You are welcome to join, and you asked at a good time. The Westbank Guild is offering free membership to everyone who joins until December 30, 2018.

Teena Myers, Chairman SCWG Westbank
