We dedicate Volume 31 of The Caribbean Writer to our esteemed founding editorial board member, Derek Alton Walcott—Nobel Prize Winner, Playwright, Poet and Artist—whose meticulously woven metaphorical poems and plays captures the essence and spirit of Caribbean expressivity across a spectrum of social and spiritual consciousness.
His support and insight helped to shape and guide The Caribbean Writer’s path over the past thirty years. For this, we are forever grateful. More
