    MAGGIE WINS THE GUYANA PRIZE FOR LITERATURE 2014:

    The Guyana Prize for Literature was established in 1987 to provide encouragement for the development of good creative writing among Guyanese in particular and Caribbean writers in general. The judges said:

    This is Harris's sixth collection of poetry and it evokes her 60 years of life in Guyana and the UK. These 74 richly textured, mature and celebratory poems sparkle and impress with a language that resonates with original imagery and insight.

    The awards were made on 29th November 2015 with Sixty Years picking up the poetry prize. David Dabydeen won for fiction.

    Ed. ROYDON SALICK
    Foreword: KENNETH RAMCHAND
    ISBN 978-0-9562901-4-4
    Launched August 2012. £13.50

    This is the first collection of Sam Selvon’s poems, thus rounding off the publication of the writer’s works; his radio dramas, ballads, short stories, non-fiction pieces, and novels have been in print for a long time. Roydon Salick has compiled the collection from records at UWI, Trinidad, the Trinidad Guardian and the BBC’s Caribbean Voices. His comprehensive introduction and notes provide an invaluable context for the work and a fascinating glimpse into Selvon as a poet.
