The Caribbean Writer Announces Volume 32 Prize Winners

The Caribbean Writer – a the University of the Virgin Islands annually published literary journal with a Caribbean focus - announced its annual prize winners for Volume 32. This edition of the Caribbean Writer, which is entitled “Rough Tides, Tough Times: Reflections and Transitions,” is a tribute by Paget Henry in memory of Wilson Harris.

“We received over 300 submissions for this edition of The Caribbean Writer.  The selections represent a wealth of talent from within the region and its diaspora,” said Alcess Lewis-Brown, editor of The Caribbean Writer. As always, our work at The Caribbean Writer requires a dedicated focus because submissions are year-round, nonstop and just about 24/7 because of the fact that our Caribbean authors live and work all over the Caribbean region and its diaspora as far away as England, India, Japan and Canada. They are as close as Jamaica, St. Lucia and Grenada, of course, the Virgin Islands,” she added. “It’s like the sun never sets at The Caribbean Writer. Our editorial board members must be commended for their diligence in providing critical expertise.”
