About Campus Literature Week

The Caribbean has a very rich literary history and culture. Campus Literature Week is intended to highlight these important aspects of our continued development by exposing the Campus community to the readings and ideas of some of the region’s preeminent exponents of the art and craft of Literature. It is also intended to provide avenues for new expression and critical discussions on the roles of the Literary Arts in the ongoing growth of the region. Campus Literature Week provides a forum for new and up-coming writers, poets and literary artists regardless of the level of experiences involved.
