Kei Miller studied English at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies before coming to MMU to do the MA in Creative Writing. He has been a visiting writer at York University in Canada, and at the Department of Library Services in the British Virgin Isles (on behalf of UNESCO). In 2007 Kei became an International Writing Fellow at the University of Iowa. He is the editor of New Caribbean Poetry and is presently a lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow.
Kei is the author of two collections of poetry – Kingdom of Empty Bellies and There is an Anger That Moves. His first short fiction collection Fear of Stones was shortlisted for the 2007 regional Commonwealth Writers Prize. His first novel The Same Earth was published in 2008.
“Raise high the roofbeams, here comes a strong new presence in poetry... Kei Miller's is a voice we will hear much more of, for it speaks and sings with rare confidence and authority.”
