And as the national need for creative writing workshops increased, the editor expanded and opened the CALLALOO CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP to a number of new and emerging writers from across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean.”Read more: Barbados CCWW
About Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop : “Callaloo was founded by current editor Charles H. Rowell in 1976 at Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA. The journal moved to the University of Virginia and then Texas A&M. Texas A&M University sponsors Callaloo, and the Johns Hopkins University Press publishes the journal four times each year. The central purposes of Callaloo are: • to provide a publication outlet, in English or English translations, for new, emerging, and established creative writers who produce texts in different languages in the African Diaspora; and • to serve as a forum for literary and cultural critics who write about the literature and culture of the African Diaspora. Callaloo is, in other words, the premier literary and cultural journal of the African Diaspora.”Read more: CCWW-About
