Fig Tree News TeamVera Chase, president of the organization, reports that Commonwealth Writers has as its goal to register as many writers, published or unpublished, as possible from Abaco to Mayaguana. The Commonwealth Writers of The Bahamas will also be making presentations in the school systems to assist and inspire budding student writers. There is, in fact, a youth component of the organization geared to assist young writers in honing their craft and publishing their creations. Spoken word artists and well as those who deal with the written word art are welcomed to the organization, which has a goal to encourage the appreciation and support of Bahamian literature.

Members of the organization were featured yesterday in a lively and informative presentation on Pricewell Forbes' Focal Point morning talk show ( During the program, Ms. Chase stated, "We have members who have written and produced cd's, so there's a vast market; there are opportunities for any and everybody who wants to put their thoughts into word, be in song, book form, or spoken word."

The organization can be contacted by e-mailing: or by writing: Commonwealth Writers of The Bahamas, Box N882, Nassau, Bahamas. They invite writers and literature lovers from the Family Islands, The U. S., Canada and worldwide to be in contact. And we, of course, look forward to their published works and cd's--to purchase in the future, both while in The Bahamas or wherever they are available to literature lovers.

Bahamian Writers Group to Focus on Hurricane Experiences

The writers organisation is asking people to put pen to paper and write about a hurricane experience.

The Commonwealth Writers of the Bahamas (TCWB), whose main purpose is to motivate, educate and inspire persons in the art of writing, has launched a short story competition.

The writers organisation is asking people to put pen to paper and write about a hurricane experience. The competition began February 28 and the deadline for entries is April 30.

"We came up with the idea to put together a short story competition to encourage people, especially the young writers, to express themselves and that is why we are asking them to write about a hurricane experience."
