House of Nehesi Publishers (HNP) announces that poets and spoken word artists of St. Martin—from the island or living abroad—are invited to submit up to five poems for a new poetry book. “Where I See the Sun–Poetry in Contemporary St. Martin” is the working name for the upcoming anthology. A wide range of subjects and writings styles are encouraged.
A rigorous selection process by a confidential editorial board is planned for “Where I See the Sun.” The writers submitting their work “just have to meet the measure,” said Drisana Debbie Jack, one of the nation’s leading author/artist. [Her first title, The Rainy Season (1997), was one of the most read HNP poetry books in 2009, according Philipsburg Jubilee Library statistics.]
House of Nehesi Publishers has published works by Kamau Brathwaite (Barbados), Amiri Baraka (USA), and Marion Bethel (The Bahamas).
