It's poetry month and to commemorate the Poet Laureate of Trinidad and Tobago Programme is launching a podcast! In our inaugural podcast, Poet Laureate Paul Keens-Douglas reads selections from his work including a new poem, ‘The Same Old’. Keens-Douglas also speaks with Circle of Poets public relations officer Andre Bagoo about life as a performer and Keens-Douglas’s role as Trinidad and Tobago’s first Poet Laureate.

We promote awareness and appreciation of poetry in Trinidad and Tobago by encouraging poets to develop their writing.
We operate in partnership with the National Library Information System Authority NALIS. See the NALIS website here.
The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
As we celebrate World Poetry Day (March 21, 2018), we asked members of the Circle of Poets of Trinidad and Tobago to tell us what poetry means to them. Over a week, we posted what our members said on our social media pages as well as our special website!
