Call for writers for Caribbean literary programme

Caribbean Cultural Theatre seeks established and new writers of published works to participate in “Celebration of The WORD 2013”.

In late June, authors and storytellers, readers and literary curious come together in Brooklyn, NY – the world’s largest Caribbean meeting place – to fete the ongoing Poets & Passion series, a literary lime entering its 8th year.

Young writers, first-time published writers, and those writing with a youth focus are especially encouraged to respond.

Interested writers should contact [email protected] with a brief outline of published work and/or work to be presented.

Previous presenters include:

Robert Antoni (Bahamas)
E. R. Braithwaite (Guyana)
Kamau Brathwaite (Barbados)
Merle Collins (Grenada)
Linton Kwesi Johnson (Jamaica)
Earl Lovelace (Trinidad)
Elizabeth Nunez (Trinidad)
Anthony Winkller (Jamaica)

Caribbean Cultural Theatre is a theatrical immersion experience presenting the work of Caribbean based and/or influenced writers, performers and other creative practitioners that entertains, enlightens and honours a balanced rendering of Caribbean culture and the Caribbean-American experience.

The Series

Poets & Passions is designed for lovers of the magic of the written word. The program is a mix of literary salon with critically acclaimed, award-winning featured writers, emerging literary talents, open mic performances, electrifying spoken word artists and stimulating discussion that positions the writer’s work as part of a larger conversation on identity, aspiration, heritage and the immigrant experience.
