Jane Bryce

Short biography
Jane Bryce writes: "Since joining Cave Hill in 1992, I have had responsibility for the Department's offerings in the area of African Literature, as well as teaching courses on the novel, poetry, literature of the colonial encounter, creative writing and feminist theory/women's writing."

"Although not a specialist, I cover Caribbean litearture and film in a number of the courses I teach, especially at graduate level.
I have taught Creative Writing: Fiction since 1997, a workshop based course designed to equip students with the skills for writing short fiction, some of which finds its way into Poui: the Cave Hill Journal of Creative Writing.
Together with two other colleagues, I have been involved in the initiative to expand the opportunities for creative writing at Cave Hill. This has included summer workshops in prose fiction and poetry led by well known Caribbean writers, Erna Brodber (prose) and Lorna Goodison (poetry) in 1998, Olive Senior (prose) and Grace Nichols (poetry) in 1999, and Kendel Hipployte (poetry) and Merle Collins (prose) in 2001. I have also brought writers such as Gabriel Gbadamosi (poet, UK)), Niyi Osundare (poet, Nigeria), Colin Channer (romance fiction writer, Jamaica), as well as locally resident writers, to the campus.
Since its inception in 1999, I have been on the editorial board of Poui: the Cave Hill."
