We are delighted to launch the online platform of the venerable Journal of West Indian Literature, a print publication since 1986 and one of the very few Caribbean-based literary journals coming out of the University of the West Indies. We have a whole new lineup of editors and advisors, and hope you like our updated look and the ease of access the online JWIL will provide. The current issue, Vol 23, Nos 1 & 2 will be available on open access shortly and you access the contents and abstracts, as well as the complete issue for a limited period; we hope thereafter you will renew your subscription which, please note, is now half of what the print version cost! Do browse the site, familiarize yourself with the history of the Journal and see our guidelines for submissions. We welcome your feedback and continued support.
