Over the weekend I had the pleasure of going on an adventure to the beautiful but little known island of Montserrat. Montserrat? Where’s Montserrat? It’s right next to Antigua, a tiny volcanic, lush place with only about 5,000 people living on it. Oh, and the way you get there…well…you have to take a TINY twin engine plane. I mean, like a plane the size of a car. NOT COOL, but still kinda cool. Ha!
I was there attending the Alliouagana Festival of the Word. That’s right. This tiny island has its own literary festival and it’s pretty cool. So cool in fact that all of you writers out there should get involved and see if you can take a trip to paradise, or as the Montserratians say, “the way the Caribbean used to be.”
Do some research and find out about this gem. Thank you to Gracelyn Cassell for the invitation, and to Norman for the tour, and to alllllll the incredible people I met. I will be back!
