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. Teena Myers, who assisted Marlaine Peachy with the north shore group, is the chairman of Southern Christian Writers on the west bank. Teena operates independent of the original group but follows their vision of helping writers attain their writing goals.

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

Due to the Corona virus, the meetings in the Gospel Bookstore are temporarily suspended. All meeting are held on ZOOM until further notice. We have added a separate critique session on the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

  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 http://msauthorexpo.com 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.
