Nex Generation Magazine Looking For Bajan Writers

Nex Generation Mag

Nex Generation Magazine is a new publication dedicated to empowering the Caribbean family. Based in Jamaica, the magazine is keen to get stories from Barbados and several other English speaking Caribbean islands on issues that effect family life from a grassroots/community perspective.

The magazine was originally published in the UK from Jan 2004 -Dec 2006, before publisher Dekenu Shepherd and his wife (who is from Barbados) relocated to Jamaica in March 2007, to raise their children in the Caribbean.

The premier issue has just been launched and the Shepherds are currently busy preparing for the August 2009 issue. Initially the primary distribution markets will be Jamaica, Barbados & Trinidad & Tobago also the UK, US & Canada.

Nex Generation Magazine is interested in hearing from writers in Barbados and the English-speaking Caribbean and can be contacted via email at …

Editor’s Note: The above was forwarded to us from a local (not BFP) writer and is published to lend a helping hand to a new publication. Good luck to Dekenu Sheperd and his crew!

    Look at the cover of that magazine…. makes you want to run out and buy it, does it? What’s wrong with us Caribbean people? Will we remain in the 15th century forever?

    Dance Africa is putting on a performance. Were you hoping to see some modern dancing? Because all you’ll get is what it’s been doing for the past 35 years… more of the same… mournful, doleful….

    Well, I guess it’s all we know … living as we do in a goldfish bowl.

    “Eat when it’s time to eat. And move along when it’s time to move along.” The Alchemist. Paulo Coelho. Us Bajans eat when it’s not time to eat and never move along. GO NOWHERE is the goal.

    Good luck to the magazine.
