Small Axe Announces its 2017 Literary Competition

The Small Axe Literary Competition encourages the production and publication of Caribbean fiction and poetry in English, Spanish and French. The competition focuses on poetry and short fiction from emerging writers whose work centers on regional and diasporic Caribbean themes and concerns. This competition is part of the Small Axe Project’s ongoing commitment to Caribbean cultural production and our mission to provide a forum for innovative critical and creative explorations of Caribbean reality. With this competition, we hope to encourage and support the region’s rich literary heritage, in the tradition of precursors such as Bim (Barbados, 1942), Kyk-over-al (Guyana, 1945), Tropiques (Martinique, 1941), Focus (Jamaica, 1940), Orígenes (Cuba, 1944)La poesía sorprendida (Dominican Republic, 1944), Revista del Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña (Puerto Rico, 1945), Conjonction (Haiti, 1946), Revista Casa(Cuba, 1960), and Savacou (Jamaica, 1970).

  1. Oh I wished I didn’t have all my writing is Spanish boxed. I wrote so much, especially poems! I used to win competitions and all then I moved to the US and now it’s hard for me to write in Spanish as I used to.
