Four young writers have been shortlisted from thirty nominations for the 2022 NGC Bocas Youth Writer Award. The inter-genre literary accolade, which was launched in 2021, targets young writers of local birth or citizenship, age 25 and under. The shortlisted writers are Shimiah Lewis, Kervisha Cordice, Rashad Hosein and Ronaldo Katwaroo.
All of us at DarkLit Press are extremely proud of Ronaldo who's nominated stories, MAKING CONVERSATION is available on our YouTube channel as well SOUCOUYANT SHORE which is published in our beach vacation horror anthology, Beach Bodies.
In honour of his nomination, we've made his story, SOUCOUYANT SHORE, free-to-read on our blog. You can also listen to MAKING CONVERSATION narrated by Nick Bouchard on YouTube.
Good luck Ronaldo!
