SOLOMON literature receives a boost today with the launch of creative writing by local authors from around the country.
“TALEMAOT: Solomon stories of peace and conflict” is a collection of creative writing on the topical issues facing the country today by Solomon Islands writers and includes poems, short stories and short film scripts.
TALEMAOT includes stories about everything from politics to disasters, family disputes to enduring friendships and humour to tragedy.
TALEMAOT features creative writing by Chelcia Gomese, Regina Lepping, Georgianna Lepping, Fred Percy Maedola, Anthony Maelasi, Julian Maka’a, Christina Mitini, Jasmine Navala-Waleafea and Vinnie D. Nomae.
The publication of the book is made possible thanks to the kind support of the British High Commission in Solomon Islands and the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) Strengthening Capacities for Peace and Development (CPAD) project.
Books are available to purchase from the Museum shop and Lime Lounge cafe in Honiara. An online version will be available in 2014.
