Writers Night

The 2016 Writing Committee welcomes all to the EGGS' Annual
Writers Night, an exclusive evening flled with food and friends that
aims to celebrate the ever-growing presence of literature within our
school. Held in the Gae Grifths Library on Thursday 25th August
(6.30-8pm), Writers Night will showcase our school's most creative
and original pieces of poetry and prose, presented by a range of our
own talented writers as well as guests from our wider community.

An interesting addition to this event has been made this year, with
the introduction of our very frst Spoken Word competition. Spoken
word, or slam poetry, is the merge of dramatic performance and
poetic literature, and has become an increasingly popular art form
to express ones opinions, experiences, and emotions. Holding the
strong belief that this approach to literature will encourage many
students to recognize the beauty and power of their words, we have
opened this competition to all of our students, and are extremely
excited to see the outcome!
