Linisa has a track record of over-achievement. She is co-owner of August Rush Productions, the director of The Young Poets Society of Antigua & Barbuda, and has won three National Youth Awards in Antigua; two for Literary Arts (2010 and 2012) and one for Youth Activism (2012).
Linisa’s poetry was published in three anthologies, including The World Record. She has also functioned in the roles of feature writer, sub-editor and editor on many projects. In this episode, Linisa turns her attention inward as we explore her experiences with mental illness, therapy, and learning to create from new, more positive mental space.
