From The Jamaica Gleaner
Artists across Jamaica are talking – on Facebook! The Trevor Rhone, Artists’ Page on Facebook was created by his son, Trevor David Rhone, in honour of arguably Jamaica’s greatest playwright.
“His vision until his untimely death in September 2009 was to foster an environment that would be able to encourage and sustain a creative community. We thought providing a platform for artists’ minds, dreams and aspirations to intermingle and grow would serve as means to keep one of his dreams for Jamaica alive. We have over 400 members, from an MTV producer in the UK to a farmer in St Catherine, Jamaica,” he said.
Trevor David Rhone says everyday members post poetry they have written – sometimes discussing it – sometimes the words hang in the Internet air, photographs and stories inspired by the theme, ‘let your spirit move you’.
“We get daily questions and feedback spanning copyrighting of a book or poem, screenplay writing, coping with writers block or just simply coping with life. To participate, please join us on Facebook and become a free member of the Trevor Rhone Artists’ Page,” he urged.
