Words Out Loud returns to Babushka lounge in Ballarat on Thursday, March 16, 7-9pm, for its next session of spoken word.
Writers, readers, poets – all word lovin’ folks with a hankering to share the love are invited along, with five-minute open mic spots on offer. Babushka has excellent sound and backing tracks can be accommodated. You won’t find a friendlier venue.
The event has a nominal theme of “blood, sweat and ink”, but as always, performers are encouraged to take the theme and run with it for their 5-minute slots – or ignore it altogether!
Entry is free, though a gold coin donation would be appreciated for this non-profit, community event.

The new committee for Ballarat Writers has been elected unopposed. They are:
Chair: Irene Warfe
Treasurer/membership: Danielle O’Donnell
Secretary: Joy Merritt
Competitions: Rebekah Spark
Publicity and media: Rebecca Fletcher.
Also at the AGM held on 15 February 2017, the Ballarat writers festival subcommittee reported that talks on venues were proceeding well and grant applications were being prepared. Volunteers will be needed to help with the running of the festival on October 20-22, so save the dates — all assistance gratefully received!
