Our Chapter

The Caribbean South Chapter caters to the southernly Caribbean and some of South America. We are a small chapter but we are big on storytelling. Our Oral tradition of storytelling is different from the written word, but we believe when worlds collide it can only create magic. We invite all authors of the region to join us.
