Peggy Carr

Peggy Carr is a journalist, writer, poet, wanderer and storyteller. Her nomad spirit has taken her from her home country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean to Taiwan on the other side of the world, where she works in the news media.

Her love of storytelling spurred the creation of SHAPE OF A WARRIOR, her first novel.

Early in her writing career, Peggy won a prestigious BBC poetry prize, which motivated her to start publishing her poems. Her most popular collection, HONEY AND LIME, contains a section that speaks to the youth of her country in Vincentian dialect.

Her poems have also been published in anthologies around the world, from the Caribbean to the United Kingdom and as far as New Zealand. In 2014, she was selected by the BBC as her country’s representative poet in the BBC Scotland’s Poetry Postcard series for the Commonwealth Games.

Peggy is a Cultural Ambassador of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. She is deeply invested in helping young people find purpose, direction and self-awareness.

Apart from writing, she loves going on various types of adventures with her three children, two granddaughters, and numerous other relatives and friends.
