Applicants sought for Cropper Foundation Workshop before 25/01/12

Just sharing from CLS:

The seventh Caribbean Creative Writers’ Residential Workshop sponsored by The Cropper Foundation and organised in partnership with the Department of Creative and Festival Arts and the Department of Liberal Arts, The University of the West Indies (UWI), St Augustine, will take place from July 8 to 19 in T&T. Ten writers who have not as yet published a novel or collection of short stories, poems or plays, will be chosen from across the Caribbean to join this year’s residential workshops. The 2012 workshop will focus on fiction, playwriting and poetry and will be facilitated by Professor Funso Aiyejina and Dr Merle Hodge at a secluded writing-inducing setting location somewhere in Trinidad.

  1. Can you consider including for your next workshop writing for children, that is, wriing by adults/young adults for children? We do need to develop the love for our own literature in our children so that we can continue the rich heritage of Caribbean writing. My name is Diane Browne and I’m a children’s writer in Jamaica. I won the special prize for a children’s short story from the Commonwealth Foundation in 2011, and I’d be willing to be a resource person/facilitator for such a section. for furth information about me:

    • Hi Diane, hopefully Cropper will pick up your suggestion, or perhaps you could reach out to them directly. We have no association, just spreading the word. Continued success to you.
