Interview with author Geoffrey Philp, the premier blogger on Caribbean book and literary events (Jamaica)




This week we have conversation with Jamaican author and blogger Geoffrey Philp. He is the creator of the premier literary blog on Caribbean books, authors and literary events. This Jamaica College alumnus is the author of a novel, Benjamin, My Son; two collections of short stories, five poetry collections and a children's book. His work has been anthologized in both the Oxford Book of Caribbean Short Stories and the Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse.  He is the recipient of numerous awards, including an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Florida Arts Council, the Sauza Stay Pure Award, James Michener fellowship at theUniversity of Miami, and an artist-in-residence at the Seaside Institute.  He will be featured author  the Jamaicans.com  sponsored Anancy Festival on  June 26th, 2010.  




At what moment did you realize that your blog had "arrived"?
I guess it was when I was complimented by the African American scholar, 
Houston A. Baker Jr.,  who said that my blog was a treasure and that I should continue with the “fine work” that I was doing.
