We appear to be the only registered group of writers in The Bahamas and the only one that includes students.
In 2004, we launched a National Poetry and Short Story Competition to gauge writing creativity throughout our islands. We were surprised to find that students and adults were very creative; they submitted poetry and short stories far beyond our expectations. Some participating islands included Rum Cay, New Providence, Abaco, Inagua, Eleuthera, San Salvador, Long Island, and Cat Island.
We were the first to host a Storyteller's Convention in The Bahamas.
We were the first to organize a radio show that was heard throughout The Bahamas called "Writing The Region"' on 1540 Radio Bahamas.
We are the only group to organize a Writing Competition and Awards Night Ceremony every year for adult and junior writers.
We have been invited to cultural events including poetry readings at Government House and tea parties at The Ministry of Tourism.
Our purpose is to educate - to ensure that all members who are interested in becoming published authors or having a career in writing receive basic skills.
We also endeavor to pursue excellence in literary skills.
WRITING AND EDITING SERVICES
We have an editing service that is second to none. For a small fee, have your manuscript professionally edited and returned to you in a few days.
