Fierce as an Island with Pamela Mordecai and Olive Senior

Outstanding poets Pamela Mordecai and Olive Senior (current Poet Laureate of Jamaica) will take part in the 2022 NGC Bocas Lit Fest, Four Days to Change the World, an entirely online festival requiring no tickets or registration.

Sunday 1 May, 2022
8 pm Trinidad and Tobago time (AST)/7 pm Jamaica time
Fierce as an Island

2022 brings collected volumes by two of the most vital and insistent voices in Caribbean and world poetry, Pamela Mordecai and Olive Senior. Ranging from past to present, the personal to the collective, across landscapes both natural and human, their poems interrogate as keenly as they celebrate Caribbean realities. Our festival grand finale brings them together in conversation with poet Canisia Lubrin, winner of the 2021 OCM Bocas Prize.

This and all other festival events will be streamed at our website, bocaslitfest.com, and on YouTube and Facebook.

The 2022 NGC Bocas Lit Fest, Four Days to Change the World, runs from Thursday 28 April to Sunday 1 May. Check out the full festival programme online.
