Thank you, Patrons

The following letter was submitted to the Daily Observer newspaper for publication.

Good Day,

As founder and coordinator of the Wadadli Youth Pen Prize, I have been thankful for the businesses, individuals, and non-profits that have extended patronage to our efforts to nurture and showcase the literary arts in Antigua and Barbuda over the years. This is no small thing as youth investment and arts patronage are significant community investments – and often not enough. Thanks, specifically, in 2021 to the following patrons:

Rilys Adams
Barbara Arrindell
The Best of Books Bookstore
The Bocas Lit Fest
Frank B. Armstrong
Daryl George 
Harper Collins UK
Joanne C. Hillhouse
Cedric Holder (for the Cushion Club)
Garfield Linton
Sekou Luke
Media
Moondancer Books
NIA Comms
Peepal Tree Press (and Diana McCaulay)
Rotary Club of Antigua
Olive Senior
Ten Pages Bookstore
Devra Thomas
Patricia L Tully
Juneth Webson

Special thanks to the team behind the scenes: Barbara Arrindell, Floree Williams Whyte, Devra Thomas, Joanne C. Hillhouse, and Margaret Irish because this doesn’t happen without a lot of volunteer time, expertise, and patience.

Thank you.
