Anansesem Caribbean Children’s Literature Ezine (online magazine) was founded in 2010 by Ms. Summer Edward. It is a community-driven digital forum in which Caribbean children’s literature can be discussed, dissected and celebrated. It started off as the passion project of our founder and blossomed into a team effort.
In addition to discovering and nurturing new children’s writers and illustrators, we provide an outlet for the non-commercial work of established children’s book creators. We have published a range of children’s and young adult (YA) writers and illustrators with a strong emphasis on marginalized voices, experimental writing, and works by important but often overlooked Caribbean writers who write for young audiences. We’ve bypassed the commercial magazine system insuring that our ezine remains community-driven rather than profit-driven.
