Bayou Writers Group was founded in 2001 by Pamela Thibodeaux and Randy Dupre, in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The goal of the Bayou Writers Group is to educate, encourage and inspire. The group holds a yearly conference, A Bridge to Publication, in November.
Through memoir, poetry, humorous, serious, and—well, just plain weird —fiction, seventeen authors write of growing up, first experiences, murder, tragedy, and brushes with the supernatural. Folk tales caution that we ignore the advice of elders to our own peril.
Whether it’s space academy, finding God, fighting wars, or bringing your cat to a psychiatrist, life takes us many interesting places. Some roads we choose. Some are chosen for us. But all have to be traveled. Join Bayou Writers Group as they explore life’s journeys in their new anthology.
