Publishing work of emerging Caribbean writers
Peekash Press publishes a series of anthologies featuring the work of emerging Caribbean writers.
What We Do
Peekash Press is dedicated to publishing the work of emerging Caribbean writers living at home in the region, and presenting a new generation of literary talent to an international audience. Begun in 2014 as a partnership between Peepal Tree Press in the United Kingdom and Akashic Books in the United States (hence the name), Peekash evolved from the CaribLit initiative, devised by the Bocas Lit Fest in partnership with Commonwealth Writers and the British Council.
In 2017, in keeping with the original intention to bring Peekash “home” to a physical base in the Caribbean, the Bocas Lit Fest assumed responsibility for the imprint.
Based in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the Bocas Lit Fest is a not-for-profit organisation working to develop and promote Caribbean writers and writing, through an annual literary festival, a series of prizes, and year-round programmes and projects aimed at writer and reader development.
Peekash is not currently accepting manuscript submissions. If you have an idea for a Caribbean literary anthology you’d like to suggest to us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
