With her interest in the creative arts, she serves as the editor of POUi, Cave Hill’s journal of creative writing as well as on the Frank Collymore Literary Endowment committee for the promotion of literary arts in Barbados.

She has published in the area of literary criticism on Caribbean and African American texts in Shibboleths, an online journal of comparative theory, and the Journal of West Indian Literature (JWIL).

The link for submissions to the short story competition will go live on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, and contestants will have until Jan. 14, 2022, to submit their entries.
