Poet Vahni Capildeo, playwright Winsome Pinnock and novelist Preti Taneja have joined UEA as visiting UNESCO Creative Writing Fellows until the end of the academic year. Vahni is a Trinidadian Scottish writer who has published seven full-length collections and four pamphlets of poetry, which includes Measures of Expatriation, the winner of the Forward Prize for Best Collection in 2016. Winsome (pictured) is an award-winning playwright, academic and dramaturg and was the first black British female writer to have a play produced by the Royal National Theatre. Her work has received the George Devine Award, The Pearson Plays on Stage Award and the Unity Theatre Trust Award. Preti teaches writing in prisons and in universities and her debut novel We That Are Young (Galley Beggar 2017) was listed for several international awards and won the 2018 Desmond Elliot Prize for best debut of the year. It has been translated into multiple languages and is published in North America by AA Knopf. It is currently in development as a TV series. All three writers will be giving masterclasses and readings while at UEA.
