“The Caribbean Writer” continues its anniversary celebration with the release of Volume 30, highlighting “Journeys and Pathways,” and invites the general public to its book launch from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8, in the Great Hall of the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix.

Volume 30 boasts literary content including insightful and exciting poetry, short-stories, one act plays, personal essays and book reviews by established, as well as emerging writers from the Caribbean and its diaspora.

“The Caribbean Writer is a gem of the University that has garnered the support of each president since its existence, and I am honored to follow in that grand tradition,” said UVI President David Hall.  “That support has been consistent because of the obvious and inherent worth and value of this publication, and its centrality to the mission of the University of the Virgin Islands.”

“I am extremely proud of the journal’s 30th year anniversary and its centrality as a major literary voice regionally, nationally, and internationally,” said Dr. Emily Allen Williams, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. “‘The Caribbean Writer’ has provided a forum for a wealth of varied literary expressions and presented the same in a high quality publication that is now known, read, and respected around the globe.”
