The Caribbean Writer, an international literary anthology published by the University of the Virgin Islands, has announced the publication of its 23rd issue. The volume contains new poetry by Edwidge Danticat and an interview with Kamau Brathwaite by Opal Palmer Adisa. The volume is dedicated to Prof. Marvin E. Williams, who stepped down as editor this year, and is guest-edited by founding editor Erika J. Waters.

Also featured is a tribute to Aimé Césaire, the influential Martinican poet; articles by French Caribbean scholars Martin Munro, Colin Dayan and J. Michael Dash; and blogs by Jennifer Brea and writer Geoffrey Philp. As in past issues, the volume showcases a unique blend of poetry, short fiction and personal essays, including works by Thomas Reiter, Delores Gauntlett, Verna E. George, Guy Stiles, Lelawattee Manoo-Rahming, Berkley Wendell Semple, Arthur V. Scott, Laurence Lieberman and others. Poetry by two UVI professors, Vincent O. Cooper and Patricia Harkins-Pierre, is featured.
There are also 20 book reviews by an international gathering of critics and authors, including UVI faculty and staff. Reviewers include Laurence Breiner, Kwame Dawes, Alison Donnell, Elaine Savory, Gail Low, Sandra Pouchet Paquet and Clement A. White, among others.
The Caribbean Writer regularly highlights art by Virgin Islanders, and this year’s cover displays work by Isabelle Picard from St. Croix. Other artists include Hilda Lewis Joyce, Ziya Neema and Lloyd A. Jarvis. The volume is guest-edited by founding editor Erika J. Waters.
Volume 23 of The Caribbean Writer is available at local bookstores on St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, and at the UVI bookstores on St. Thomas and St. Croix.
