'STIR IT UP - 
50 YEARS OF WRITING JAMAICA'

We have a date!

Jamaican Writers & Poets 

'Stir It Up' on BBC Radio4
 
September 10th 

#Jamaica50




To mark 50 years of Jamaican independence, author, poet and performer Salena Godden considers the impact of her Jamaican heritage on her literary identity. Salena will take us on a personal journey exploring the rich and varied body of work created by her literary contemporaries. She will speak to some of the ‘now generation’ of Jamaican writing, many of whom reside in the UK, and examine how Real Jamaica features in their writing, both as a physical and imaginary location - their relationship with home. Among others we’ll meet celebrated dub poet Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze and author and poet Professor Kwame Dawes. Its a celebration of the poetic heart of Jamaica and a salute to Miss Lou, Bob Marley’s lyrical legacy and more...This programme will feature new poetry and excerpts of Salena Godden's book 'Springfield Road' adapted for BBC Radio 4.

  "I remember when we used to sit In the government yard in Trenchtown And then Georgie would make the fire light
Log wood burnin' through the night Then we would cook corn meal porridge Of which I'll share with you..."
