Each year the students of the Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing programme organise campus literature week. We invite a Writer in Residence (or 3) and the students design the programme, inviting readers from campus and the wider writing community in Trinidad & Tobago to take part in lunch time readings at the Alma Jordan Library.
Our Writer in Residence this year is Vahni Capildeo, Scottish Trinidadian Poet
We have also sponsored the following up and coming writers in residence
Kevin Garbaran, Guyanese Writer
Scott Ting-A-Kee, Guyanese Writer
Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 virus and the guidelines for social distancing, we have moved our lit week online. Here you will find the daily lunchtime readings, videos captured of the writers in residence discussing, performing, sharing and the gala evening presentation by Vahni Capildeo with Johnny Stollmeyer giving a performance.
