LOST STATE

WRITERS GUILD

 

CELEBRATING OUR 25th ANNIVERSARY!

 

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 Avoca Public Library, conveniently located just off the Volunteer Parkway in Bristol, TN.  During the current Covid pandemic restrictions, we will hold our monthly meetings via ZOOM and will email everyone a link prior to each meeting date.  

 

We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10:30am to 12:00pm.  Once we resume our in person meetings, we will 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.
