Olive Senior

Olive Senior is a Jamaican poet, novelist, short story and non-fiction writer based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She was awarded the Musgrave Gold Medal in 2005 by the Institute of Jamaica for her contributions to literature. In her own words: "I've been meandering across borders all my life and continue to do so, and my writing career is a reflection of that: I write in different genres - fiction, non-fiction, poetry. I have publishers in Jamaica, England, Canada and the USA. I'm of mixed background racially and socially. I travel a great deal. I live in several different worlds. But, 'If crab no walk, him nuh see worl' and I'm the perpetual seeker."
