Interview With Geoffrey Philp @ Caribbean Literary Salon

CLS: On your blog, you dedicate a significant number of articles on Caribbean writers. What are your thoughts on the present volume and quality of prose and poetry produced in the Caribbean?

Geoffrey Philp: I am amazed that we have so many active published writers in the Caribbean and its diaspora. The quality of the prose and poetry that has been produced in the past few years has been extraordinary. I’m thinking about, for example, the work of Jennifer Rahim, Frances Coke, Opal Palmer Adisa, Kwame Dawes, and Kei Miller to name a few.

I’m also gratified by the work of critics such as Heather Russell and Donna Aza Weir Soley, whose work has opened up a new critical appreciation of our writers.
