Talented artist Danielle Boodoo-Fortune is the winner of the Wasafiri New Writing Prize- Poetry for her poem Portrait of my father as a grouper.
Wasafiri is a UK-based international magazine on contemporary writing. It is published quarterly. The name comes from the Kiswahili word for ‘travellers’.The magazine was formed out of a deliberate initiative to introduce a more diverse set of books to British school libraries and reading lists.
She’s also a brilliant artist. I have one of her colouring books, but her watercolours are stunning. She’s just really very talented.
