Geoffrey Philp

Geoffrey Philp is a Jamaica poet, novelist, playwright, and my definition of a cultural warrior, who tirelessly promotes Caribbean culture and heritage. Geoffrey holds a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of Miami.

He is the author of novels, plays, short stories and several collectons of poetry. His work appears in many publications, including The Oxford Book of Caribbean Short Stories, The Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse, The Caribbean Writer, Small Axe, Asili, and Gulf Stream.

Geoffrey has been an Artist-in-Residence at the Seaside Institute, and has received James Michener fellowships and many other awards, including the Canute Brodhurst Prize.

Check out Geoffrey's blog and you can also connect with him on Twitter and on Facebook

Guess what, Geoffrey's also giving away Grandpa Sydney's Anancy Stories on Kindle until 10/6/12, so hop over to his blog for details!

Stay tuned during October for more on this amazing poet!
