Welcome to Bayou Writers Group

About BWG


Founded in 2002 by Pamela Thibodeaux and Randy Dupre, the goal of the Bayou Writers Group is to educate, encourage, and inspire. 

We welcome authors of all genres and host an annual Young Writers Contest to bring awareness and recognition to those who will (hopefully) follow in our footsteps to keep BWG alive and flourishing

Bayou Writers Group, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Over the years we've grown and evolved from a small group of people meeting monthly to a NP Organization with an Annual Conference, Writing Contests and group Anthology!
