Imam Baksh

Caribbean Young Adult Literature, Winner, 2015

Imam Baksh is a writer from Guyana. He enjoys tales of magic monsters and heroes of all kinds. He’s also interested in history and how the world works, and never accepts any claim unless he’s given proof. He enjoys research, which helps him write better stories and win many arguments.

As a boy Imam left his countryside home on the Essequibo Coast to attend high school in the city of Georgetown, where he learned most of his bad habits. He became a trained teacher, specialized in English, but he had the most fun teaching physics because he got to use electricity on his students. These days he is a full-time writer and his short stories have won the Henry Josiah Prize for Children’s Stories three times between 2006 and 2010.
