Felene M. Cayetano is a Garifuna writer and librarian. Her migration from Belize to Los Angeles at the age of 9 was a key factor that led her to writing poetry in primary school before easing into writing short stories. This love of writing was balanced by a love of reading which gave her the vocabulary to voice her experiences and an appreciation for libraries.
She has published two poetry collections and one anthology of short stories. Her work has been included in anthologies, journals and dissertations.
She will direct her narrative short screenplay, Afieni, in 2021.
