Modeste Downes to the Chair

The Saint Lucia Writers’ Forum presents its fourth edition of the Laureate’s Chair. It is enthusiastic to announce its first featured writer from the South of the island, Mr Modeste Downes, educator, journalist, songwriter and poet. He is the award winning writer of Phases and Theatre of the Mind and has an upcoming publication, Lessons on Wings.

The Laureate’s Chair is a reading activity that allows for the mingling of seasoned and budding writers, along with the wider general public. The event is free and takes place every last Tuesday of month at the Castries Central Library at 7pm.

At this month’s event which will be held on Tuesday the 28, the Forum will be taking a silent collection (no coins allowed) in aid of recovery efforts for Dominica. Come with your questions and please make a special effort to attend as we continue to celebrate the achievement of our Nobel Laureate in Literature, Hon. Derek Walcott.
