What We Write

In the realm of literary arts, Barbados is proud to have produced writers of international repute.

George Lamming, Austin ‘Tom’ Clarke and Edward Kamau Brathwaite are three of the best known.


The revived literary magazine BIM served as an outlet for literary works from as far back as the 1940s and its reincarnation confirms that the art form is alive and well in Barbados.

The Summer Arts Festival is happy to associate with the BIM literary festival, which precedes our festival by a few days.
