Tamara Groeneveldt

St. Martin


Tamara Groeneveldt was born in St. Martin in 1984. She grew up in the traditional fishing village of Grand Case as it was rapidly evolving into a virtual international “cuisine capital of the Caribbean.” Groeneveldt started writing poetry as a St. Maarten Academy high school student. She joined the Young Poets Society while attending the University of St. Martin—where she gave her first public reading. Groeneveldt holds a master’s degree in social work from Florida A&M University. Groeneveldt coordinates Under the Gazebo, the poetry open mic for the St. Martin Book Fair. She is a former award-winning president of Soualiga Corporate Toastmasters Club. Her poems were first published in Where I See the Sun – Contemorary Poetry in St. Martin (2013). After The Storm is the first book by Tamara Groeneveldt.
