Great news about a new Caribbean literature prize and a new Caribbean literary festival. The first ever Bocas Lit Fest takes place April 28 - May 1, 2011 in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago. This is a positive development for Caribbean literature and culture, and this new literary festival now joins the Calabash Festival, held annually in Jamaica, as an additional medium to showcase Caribbean writing.
The new OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature will be awarded for the first time in April 2011 during the Bocas Lit Fest. Check out more details at the Caribbean Review of Books website
