The panel, featuring Trinidad-born Bermuda resident Rawle Frederick, Jamaican author Jean Goulbourne, and Holland-born writer/politician Maria van Enckevort of St. Martin/Sint Maarten, discusses emigration throughout the Caribbean and peculiarities of writing in each Caribbean space. Enckevort speaks about how politics shaped her writing, and Goulbourne and Frederick agree that having a life outside writing helps to build wider viewpoints. They discuss the carnival and revivalism. Goulborne reads a section of her poem "Mama Soul" and Frederick reads a poem about calypso, and Enckevort responds to these poems about carnival.
