For More Information

I was hesitant to put this up since the site for Calabash 2007 seems so still. I'm hoping that the event is still happening this year. Colin Channer is a friend of mine but I haven't seen him in a while. If I find out more information I'll post it. Iron Balloons: Hit Fiction from Jamaica's Calabash Writer's Workshop is a collection of stories published by Akashic Books as a result of the work done at past Calabash Festivals. Here is a link to Calabash 2006.

The Calabash International Literary Festival was founded in 2001 by novelist Colin Channer with the support of two friends, the poet Kwame Dawes and the producer Justine Henzell. Their aim was simple—to create a world-class literary festival with roots in Jamaica and branches reaching out into the wider world.
