We challenged writers to submit poems and short stories on the topic of Crop Over Unapologetic. We are also featuring the visual works of photographers who were inspired by the writings to help with the visual aesthetic of the magazine under the same theme. This magazine features written wizardry from, Daveny Ellis, Shaneise Holder, Aprille Thomas, Ramone Blackman, Robert Gibson, Andre Sandiford-Williams, Robert Edison Sandiford, Sonia Williams, Linda Deane and Jamaica award-winning writer Opal Palmer Adisa with a guest piece by local legend Winston Farrell.
