More Than A Literary Festival

Ronaldo Katwaroo

Spoken Word Poet
Trinidad & Tobago


Ronaldo Katwaroo is a Caribbean Author hailing from the twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago. For the longest while he has been fascinated with the macabre and all things horror, whether its film or literature. Inspired by writers such as H.P Lovecraft, Bram Stoker and Stephen King, Katwaroo takes a unique approach when it comes to his writing. An advocate for women’s rights, he was awarded for his essay on gender equality by his regional corporation in 2021, the same year that his tropical short story “Making Conversation,” was accepted and narrated by DarkLit Horrors on their YouTube channel as a part of their bite-sized horror playlist where it has since garnered hundreds of views, granting Katwaroo a place within the horror community and giving him notoriety amongst his peers. In 2022, his short story “Soucouyant Shore,” was published in Darklit Press’ Anthology “Beach Bodies.” That year, he also published his debut collection “Disingenuous Solace Volume 1,” which packs a heavy punch and showcases his love for the horror genre with tales paying homage to Legendary films such as “Scream,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” and “The Shining.” As his career continues to mature, he aspires to one day leave his mark on the horror industry like so many greats before him and proudly represent his Caribbean heritage.
