Congrats to Jamaican poet Juleus Ghunta on the publication of his first book. Wadadli Pen readers may already be familiar with his work as his poem Wounds was previously shared in Reading Room and Gallery 25 and his poem Damage in Reading Room and Gallery 26 As his publisher Caribbean Reads (also publisher of two of my books Burt award teen/young adult title Musical Youth and Lost! A Caribbean Sea Adventure)
recently announced via its promotional e-newsletter, his forthcoming book is Tata and the Big Bad Bull, illustrated by Catherine Loo.
Shout out as well too to the recent winner of the Casa de las Americas prize Barbadian Anthony Kellman, and to the honourable mentions Bajan Sharon Milagro Marshall and Vincentian Philip Nanton. Read about them over at Repeating Islands.
