The new committee for Ballarat Writers has been elected unopposed. They are:
Chair: Irene Warfe
Treasurer/membership: Phil Green
Secretary/public officer: Laura Wilson
Publicity and media: Rebecca Fletcher
A huge thank you to Danielle , Joy and Rebekah for their help last year, and welcome to Laura, who is a brand new committee member!
Our competitions chair is currently vacant, so if you’re looking to get involved with the committee but missed out on nominations, please get in touch with us and let us know! The competitions position is possibly the least task-intensive of the roles, so if you’re looking to dip your toes further into BWI or committees in general, it’s a great opportunity.
We’re excited by our plans for 2018, so stay tuned to see what we have waiting in the wings!
Words Out Loud is taking its inspiration from White Night Ballarat when it takes to the stage on March 15 at the Printers Room, in the basement of Sebaastians at the corner of Mair and Lydiard streets.
The spoken word event encourages poets, writers and raconteurs to share their work, or favourite pieces by others, for five-minute open mic sessions on the third Thursday of each month (unless otherwise advertised). The theme for March is “shine a light”, but it isn’t compulsory.
Enter via Mair St. Drink and food available before and during. Enjoy the show from couches, the tables or a seat by the bar. Gold coin donation appreciated.
Performances begin from 7pm.
This is a great opportunity to test new material, celebrate a success or share some inspiration, or simply enjoy a diverse range of spoken word.
