Summary
'Maggie Harris mines the hidden corners of marriage, motherhood, exile, and the places we choose to call home... Whether exploring Guyana's junglescapes and flatlands, Irish cliffs or rural Wales, her characters arrive on the page eager to tell their stories.' - Sharon Millar '...bitter-sweet, beautifully written tales.' - Janet Montefiore Maggie Harris' short-story collection Writing on Water is told through voices from the Caribbean where she was born and Britain where she has lived as an adult, and through them, the wider world. These are stories of migration, belonging and survival, of children and families brought together or torn apart. This is a varied collection containing stories such as 'Sending for Chantal', a story of Caribbean migration about a child who hasn't seen her mum since she was 4 and is now in her 30s, which was the Regional Winner of The Commonwealth Short Story Prize in 2014. Maggie, who lives in West Wales, writes poetry and prose and also won the poetry section of the Guyana Prize for Literature 2014
