Writers in cbd have rhyme of their lives

THURSDAY in the CBD was a tornado of tongue twisters when the Bundaberg Writers' Group entertained passers-by with their talents.

Five members of the group were offering their writing services which included writing personalised limericks, poems and greetings.

Bundaberg Writers Club member Sandy Curtis said the set up found some closet Bundy writers.

“We have had so many people coming over to tell us they are writers as well,” she said.

“It's amazing the amount of writing talent in Bundaberg.”

The aim of the day was to create awareness that the club existed.

The limerick triplets Lorraine Heyes, Laree Chapman and Judy Milgate were producing rhymes in just seconds.

“We have this silly frivolous side of our writing which has erupted today,” Laree Chapman said.

Lucky dip limericks and poems were laid out on a table for visitors to choose from.

The writers will be offering their services in the CBD for the next two Thursdays from 10am until noon and at the Art Market tomorrow from 10am until 3pm.

The group is also offering the chance to win a free year of membership to the club.

Writers @ Play is just one event being held in conjunction with the first ever Bundaberg Crush Festival.

The fun is well under way with several events already being held including the Bundaberg Arts Festival, Bundy Busk and plenty more to come.

Tomorrow, the BRAG Sunday Art Market is on at the gallery and is a showcase for many Bundaberg artists.

This month's Crush Festival promises to deliver something for everyone this month so grab a copy of the program from the council office and enjoy the artistic fun.
