Law and Poetry

Hello dear readers!

It has been quite a while since I last posted on the blog, so I'm furiously trying to catch up. I hope you have been enjoying poetry here on this blog and elsewhere. So much has happened since I last posted, including, sadly, the passing of Sir Derek Walcott, but also the good news of Lorna Goodison being appointed Jamaica's first female Poet Laureate.

I have been hunkered down for the past three years with another passion of mine - the law, and have been pursuing a grueling LLB program. Thankfully, I just finished writing my last three exams, and God willing, I am hoping in August I will have good results.

Now that my LLB program is out of the way, I will be more active on the blog, promoting the work of Caribbean poets, especially newer ones. I am so thankful to a reader who took the time to post a comment which included names of Caribbean poets I did not have on my list. I am so grateful to readers who bring to my attention amazing poets throughout the Caribbean. Thank you also to the other readers who posted very thoughtful comments on my post. I appreciate your patience regarding my delayed responses.

If you live in Canada, I hope you are enjoying the Canada Day celebrations, and to my United States readers, Happy Fourth of July!

Walk good!
