We thought it appropriate to take a moment to spotlight Wadadli Pen alum, now a National (Antigua and Barbuda) Youth Award winning, publisher/editor (Antigua Chronicle) and senior reporter/editor (Star News Publication in St. Lucia) who has been tapped as Woman of the Week by the Voice (in St. Lucia) – read the full profile here. While we know that her shine is all hers, we do love to celebrate with those who’ve passed through Wadadli Pen along their journey and continue to achieve great things. We’re happy for them like they were family; because they are. Congrats, Angelica.
Readers, if you want to check out her winning story (Roadtrip to Paradise) from the 2006 Wadadli Youth Pen Prize Challenge go here and as a bonus check out this poem (Loving the Skin I’m In) that earned honourable mention in 2014.
