Small Axe Literary Prize winners

The editors of Small Axe have asked Antilles to help announce the winners of their first annual Literary Prize for "poetry and short stories from emerging writers whose work centres on regional and diasporic Caribbean themes and concerns."

Short fiction:

First place: Ashley Rousseau, St Andrew, Jamaica
Second place: Alake Pilgrim, D'Abadie, Trinidad and Tobago


First place: Monica Minott, Kingston, Jamaica
Second place: Tanya Shirley, Kingston, Jamaica

The winning entries will be published in Small Axe 32 in July 2010.

The deadline for next year’s literary competition is April 2011. See further details here.

Antilles congratulates the four winners, and we look forward to reading their stories and poems in Small Axe next year. (I'll add that Tanya Shirley is also a CRB contributor--we've published two of her poems and, in our August 2008 issue, her review of Velma Pollard's most recent book.)
