News, Information, Resources for Caribbean Publishing
CaribLit is a Caribbean-based initiative supported by the Commonwealth Foundation and the British Council to provide supporting resources for Caribbean writers and publishers. A working group of writers and publishers first met in Trinidad in April 2012 to generate practical ideas for growing regional publishing. The current coordinator of the group is based in Jamaica and the first phase of activities focuses on the Anglophone Caribbean.
Our first project is the development of an online hub for Caribbean literature where members can discuss and present their achievements in an easily accessible/highly visible online space. We would love to hear your thoughts on what online resources you would find most useful. We will launch the site at the 2013 NGC Bocas Lit Fest to be held in Trinidad in April.
Please fill out the brief survey below. Your details will be held securely by CaribLit and will not be passed to any third party. And please continue the conversation with us via social media:-
