  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.

    • 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. All you have to do is email me scwg@cox.net a headshot, bio and sample of your writing if you would like to blog on the Guild website. I look forward to learning more about you.
