We are delighted to be launching the volume, Teaching Caribbean Poetry, on 29 October in Homerton Combination Room. Published by Routledge, this book was edited by Professors Beverley Bryan and Morag Styles with contributions from Homerton Fellows, Georgie Horrell and David Whitley.

Working under the umbrella of the Centre for Commonwealth Education at the Faculty of Education, of which Homerton Fellow Mike Younger is the Director, the book is an outcome of the Caribbean Poetry Project which we have been running since 2010. Guests to the launch include Honorary Fellow, Carol Ann Duffy, the Poet Laureate, who is our patron, and Sir Andrew Motion, Director of the online Poetry Archive, one of our advisors with whom we work closely. Members of our project team based at The University of the West Indies in Jamaica will be present as well as other Fellows, Caribbean poets and Judy Curry, Chief Executive of the Commonwealth Education Trust which funds the project. There will be speeches of welcome from Professor Geoff Ward, the Principal of Homerton , and Mike Younger.   Beverley Bryan and Morag Styles will provide some background to the book.

The Formal Hall later that evening will have a Caribbean flavour and the sound of steel drums will be heard in the distance!
