U.K.-based poet-musician, Humroy Whyte takes centre-stage as Featured Poet, this Tuesday for the Poetry Society of Jamaica’s Monthly Fellowship at the Edna Manley College Amphitheatre beginning at 7:30pm. With just two fellowships to go before the close of the 2016 season, all systems are go for the October 25 edition.
Whyte is a noted theatre specialist, journalist and is recognized for his dedicated contribution as an educator. He studied at the Jamaica School of Drama under the guidance of Dennis Scott, and most recently read in tribute to the poet-playwright on the same stage exactly one year ago. Whyte’s noteworthy literary works have appeared in regional and international journals, and this Tuesday, the new and previously published will go on show.
In addition, emerging poets are invited to share their work and receive critique in the open mic and discussions segment, while gaining insight from the night’s Featured Lecture and Featured Works, the latter showcasing noteworthy literary work throughout the evening. The Poetry Society of Jamaica’s Monthly Fellowships are open to the public and hosted on the last Tuesday of each month.
