Writ­ers Fo­rum to Host Lau­re­ate’s Chair

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Saint Lu­cia Writ­ers Fo­rum will once again host a Lau­re­ate’s Chair at the Cen­tral Li­brary. The event, which is slated for Tues­day, June 28th, will fea­ture Mr. McDon­ald Dixon.

Ev­ery month, a lo­cal writer is fea­tured who speaks on Wal­cott and how he has in­spired their jour­ney as a writer. The fea­tured guest also shares with the au­di­ence his favourite Wal­cott piece. The event is aimed at emerg­ing writ­ers and pro­vides them with the op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with sea­soned and cel­e­brated lo­cal au­thors.

Mr. Dixon, Saint Lu­cian born, was ed­u­cated at the Angli­can in­fant and pri­mary schools and went on a schol­ar­ship to St. Mary’s Col­lege. He is well known for his ac­com­plish­ments in the lit­er­ary arts as well as in the vis­ual arts cat­e­gory, and is a sea­soned pho­tog­ra­pher. His pub­lished nov­els Sea­sons of Mist and Mis­be­got­ten are a lit­er­ary treat for any­one look­ing for a good read.

The event starts at 7p.m. Lim­ited seat­ing is avail­able and light re­fresh­ments will be served.
