Coming Up Hot : Eight New Caribbean Poets from the Caribbean

Coming Up Hot : Eight New Caribbean Poets from the Caribbean


Here is an opportunity to discover some of the best new, unpublished poets from the Caribbean.

Meet Danielle Boodoo-Fortune and her richly Gothic take on love and its complications;Danielle Jennings’ exuberant narratives of family history and the struggles for respect between men and women; Ruel Johnson’s often witty attempts to confront the insanity of contemporary Guyana’s race wars and political corruption through the formal coolness of poetry; Monica Minott’s frank celebrations of women’s sexuality and her attempt to re-enter the world of spirit possession and trance;Debra Providence’s spare womanist reflections that pack a more devastating punch by saying more with less; Shivanee Ramlochan’s confidently experimental poems that explore the threatening uncertainties of the present through the imagery of speculative fictions set in some post-disaster world; Colin Robinson’s polyphonic, modernist reflections on the queer Caribbean and its joys and sorrows; and Sassy Ross’s tightly structured explorations of memory between the here and there of St Lucia and New York.
