LOST STATE

WRITERS GUILD

 

CELEBRATING OVER 25 YEARS!

 

LSWG

 

 

Our new LSWG Logo uses three quills to represent the Tri-City region and our Tri-State members in TN, VA and NC.  

The quills also symbolize the three segments of writing: introduction/body/ending.

 

MEETINGS

 

 

Our Guild meeting place is within a central location of the Tri-City region - the Gray Public Library, conveniently located just off the Bobbie Hicks Hwy in Gray, TN.    

 

We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10:30am to 12:00pm.  Resuming our in-person meetings, we continue to offer Zoom attendance as well for the convenience of our out-of-state members.  Our meetings will also be video taped and available to members via a special YouTube link.

 

 

DUES

Annual Membersip Dues are $20 per person and payable to LSWG at the beginning of each calendar year; collected during January 1st - March 31st.  Dues may be paid by personal check and mailed to LSWG, 115 Timberbrook Dr., BRISTOL, VA 24201 or paid via our Pay Pal Account and reference the LSWG email address: info@loststatewritersguild.com then select "gift" to avoid any service charge on Pay Pal.
