The Caribbean Writer

Vol 34 Delivery Delay

Volume 34 COVID19 Advisory

Dear TCW Family,


Like us, we know that you are looking forward to cradling volume 34 in hand and leafing through its rich pages. So we thought now, in the midst of this deepening pandemic, to update you on our progress towards the April 2020 publication date.


As the lines have fallen out, The Caribbean Writer delivery times will be later than anticipated as our off-island printer is advising 1 to 2 month delays while they see to local shelter–in-place directives. We note that many of you have already pre-ordered copies which we will ship to you as soon as they become available.


We thank you for your continued patience and wish you the very best of health.


Please email us with any questions at


All the best,
Alscess Lewis Brown

      Thank you Cyril. We are hanging in there. I hope you and your family are tucked in and safe. Volume 35 — the next Volume (2021) will be dedicated to Kamau Brathwaite. We invite your submission and ask that you pass the word among the Caribbean literati.

      Warmest regards.

  • I’m hoping everyone is holding up, staying well. I am about to submit two poems. I read about your contributors and editors and will be anxious to hear your response. Thank you.

    Indeed the pandemic has put our lives of hold but we have to keep the faith. I am looking forward to the issue on Edward Kamau Brathwaite. I fell in love with one of his poems in school called “Timbuctu.” I regretted having not met him when he was scheduled to read at the 92nd Street Y in New York City years ago. He fell ill and could not keep the appointment. As soon as it’s safe to make the journey to Mali, I will go there in remembrance of my “Edward” Brathwaite.

    Best wishes,
    S.D. Brown–short story writer

    Thank you so much for sharing that. I hope you will submit a piece in this edition. I hope you are also being safe.
