I'm a writer and editor with a particular interest in Caribbean literature and art. I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and am still here. My book of poems, “The Strange Years of My Life”, was published in 2015.
I'm the editor of Caribbean Beat, a bimonthly magazine; co-director of the contemporary art space Alice Yard; and programme director for the Bocas Lit Fest.
I've also edited a collection of essays by C.L.R. James, “Letters from London” (2003), a revised and expanded edition of V.S. Naipaul's early family correspondence, “Letters Between a Father and Son” (2009), and an anthology of new writing from Commonwealth small island countries, “So Many Islands” (2018).
