Nicholas Laughlin · January, 2010

I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and am still here; I’m the editor of The Caribbean Review of Books, a bimonthly magazine; co-director of the contemporary art space Alice Yard; and programme director for the Bocas Lit Fest. I’m a writer with a particular interest in Caribbean literature and art. I’ve been blogging (sometimishly) at nicholaslaughlin.blogspot.com since October 2002, despite my occasional technophobe twinges; and more recently at Antilles, the CRB blog. You can find out more about me at my home page, nicholaslaughlin.net.
