UWI Virtual Campus Lit Week
Each year the students of the Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing programme organise campus literature week. They 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.
The Writer in Residence this year is Vahni Capildeo, Scottish Trinidadian Poet.
They have also sponsored the following up and coming writers in residence: Kevin Garbaran, Guyanese Writer, and Scott Ting-A-Kee, Guyanese Writer
Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 virus and the guidelines for social distancing, UWI Campus Lit Week has moved 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.
