Heather Barker


Heather Barker writes about the worlds of Caribbean women with a clear-eyed mixture of religion,  youthful feminism, and West Indian social commentary. In 2010 she was a finalist in Barbados’ foremost literary prize, the Frank Collymore Literary Endowment. And in 2008 she received the George Lamming Prize for Literary Excellence for the short story, Letter to Dee.

Her writing has appeared in The Truth About Oranges and Other Works – A Winning Words Anthology, Callaloo, and Pepperpot: Best New Stories from the Caribbean, an anthology of original short stories from the best entries to the Commonwealth Short Story Prize.
