Our Redbones Last Wednesday Monthly Poetry Nights continue Tonight with our two featured female poets, Ann-Margaret Lim and Avi Miller. For those who love Spoken Word, this night is for you!!
Ann-Margaret Lim’s first poetry collection, THE FESTIVAL OF WILD ORCHID, published by Peepal Tree Press in the UK, in 2012, received a UK Guardian First Book nomination two months after its publication, and in February of 2013 received an Honorable Mention in the Poetry Category of the prestigious Bocas Prize. She was a featured reader at Calabash 2014 which got her a mention in Ebony Magazine as one of the 6 Caribbean Writers to discover for summer. Her second book, KINGSTON BUTTERCUP, also published by Peepal Tree Press will be out this summer.
Avi Miller is a writer and biologist based in Kingston, Jamaica. She has been writing commentaries and poems since the age of six and considers Wayne Brown to be instrumental in her literary development.
