Louisiana Saturday Night - Fun Places and Groups

We have some great 'goings-on' in Louisiana. Festivals of all kinds. Surprisingly, we have a good number of literary happenings. Take a look:

The annual Jubilee Writers conference will be going on in April. This is a huge event that everyone raves about. I've never been, but I want to. Does that count?

The Society of Children's Book Writers has a Louisiana chapter. That's exciting. Check them out.

The North Louisiana has a wonderful conference every year. Check it out here. This is a Romance Writers of America chapter and they bring in some good editors and agents.

We have three other RWA chapters worth your while.
SOLA in New Orleans
Couer de Louisiane in Alexandria
There's also a great group called Writers' Guild of Acadian in Lafayette. Their link is broken so you might google them to try to learn more.

Louisiana Book Festival in Baton Rouge

New Orleans Literary Institute

Take a look at A Studie in the Woods. This is a fascinating venture so explore the website.

And our very own Bayou Writers' Group in Lake Charles, LA. We have a great one-day conference each November and we have a good blogsite and website. Check us out.

I apologize for the ugly links but I couldn't attach them to the titles of the groups so... we'll just look tacky this post.
Louisiana has a festival for every occasion. Check us out at
