My name is Kimberly Inglis and I’m from the lovely Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. I’m fascinated by language and I love writing. I also enjoy baking and run an online dessert shop called K’s Sweet Expressions #shamelessplug.
I started this blog in 2015 as a medium to share my poems and later added the ‘Photo Opinion’ section. Two years later, when I saw a post on social media from the NGC Bocas Lit Fest requesting bloggers for the festival, I felt like I had enough content to apply. As luck (or fate) would have it, I was selected to be one of the inaugural Bocas Youth Bloggers. It was an amazing experience and also opened the window for me to volunteer later that year as a blogger for Green Screen: The Environmental Film Festival. I attended workshops by Lisa Allen-Agostini and Mark Lyndersay as well as received advice from experienced writers such as Julien Neaves and BC Pires. This exposure afforded me opportunities to learn and grow as a blogger and dare I say it…a writer.
Side note: It took me a long time to actually feel comfortable referring to myself as a writer. Like 2019 long, hello impostor syndrome lol.
Let’s just say that being a youth blogger for Bocas really got the ball rolling; I later felt confident enough to pursue freelance writing on a part-time basis and I’ve been working at it ever since.
I’ve written for Caribbean Insight Magazine, Caribbean POSH, Propa Eats (TT Guardian) as well as the Trinidad and Tobago Endometriosis Association (TTEA). I also did a guest post for One Pot Living, a lifestyle blog run by a fellow Trinidadian.
I’m grateful to be able to write, tell stories, express emotions, make others laugh and most importantly OVERFLOW WITH CREATIVITY.
