JWIL online residency on Edward Baugh (Jan 29-Feb 5, 2024)

Join us for JWIL‘s first online residency for 2024 which will be a tribute to professor and poet Edward Baugh. From Monday Jan 29 to February 5, we will be sharing readings from Baugh’s poetry by Caribbean writers and scholars.

This residency is a collaboration with the Off the Page Initiative and grows out of the gathering that Off the Page convened on New Year’s Eve to remember Baugh and celebrate his work. Off the Page is a literary initiative based in Jamaica and spearheaded by Carolyn Allen. It aims to share the region’s literature through various forms that engage with the region’s oral and performance culture.

At the end of the residency, the videos, in tribute to Baugh, will be made available on JWIL‘s newly launched YouTube channel.
