CAN YOU SIGN MY TENTACLE? just jumped to Amazon’s #1 Caribbean Poetry New Release & the #13 Caribbean Poetry Best Seller!

I just realised:

last FIYAHCON, Spotify wasn't available in 🇹🇹, so I could only listen to all the top-tier writer playlist picks in the Meloscriptorium in 30-second chunks.

But now, I have Spotify! So I'm saving alladem. This Action playlist gonna get me through a draft soon!

The fact that is doing this work in particular--not only archiving this content for people to explore as a resource later, but making sure it's transcribed for accessibility purposes--is so radical all on its own.

The Decolonising Narrative Structures panel was so abundantly informative! Listening to @WHereaka, @yilinwriter, @daphneleeml & @IoriKusano discuss the myriad other ways to tell a story (and the cultural value of each way) is genuinely inspiring.
