CARIBBEAN ALLIANCE BECOMES NEWEST WADADLI PEN PRIZE SPONSOR
Friday 29th April 2011

Caribbean Alliance Insurance Company Limited has become the latest business to commit to the Wadadli Youth Pen Prize package. We want to express sincerest thanks to Caribbean Alliance. Its cash contribution, the second largest individual cash contribution for the Best of Books Wadadli Pen Challenge 2011 after ABI Insurance, will go a long way towards encouraging and supporting the creativity and effort of the participants in this year’s Challenge. The prize contributions are designed as an incentive, not the reason for creating art – the motivation for creating art is beyond material – but recognition that what has been created has real value, that our artistes have value. It has been a challenging period for raising contributions, so I especially salute the businesses that have come through. In addition to Caribbean Alliance and ABI Insurance, this includes Seven Seas/Frank B. Armstrong, and K & E Party Time. It also includes associations and programmes like the International Women’s Club of Antigua and Barbuda and the Antigua and Barbuda International Literary Festival. Artists and writers are also chipping in; namely Edison Liburd, Jennifer Meranto, D. Gisele Isaac, Floree Williams, Marcel Marshall, and African American author Jewell Parker Rhodes.

As previously reported, the literary arts judging cycle is in progress, and the visual art submissions are due in any day now; the outcome to be revealed at the upcoming Best of Books anniversary street fair in June. We also invite you to check out the ever-growing Wadadli Pen site (http://wadadlipen.wordpress.com) which includes everything from past winning stories to past sponsors and partners, and lots more on not just Wadadli Pen but the literary arts in Antigua and Barbuda, and the wider Caribbean.
