“Speaking Freely” by Andrea Christian

(CNS): The first local artist showcase her work on CNS Local Life is author Andrea Christian, who has written a children’s book, four adult fiction books and a non-fiction book, “Speaking Freely”, an excerpt of which is included on her CNS page. As well as highlighting the good news of the Cayman Islands, CNS Local Life provides a platform to showcase the talent we have here. Artists, poets, musicians, writers (fiction and non-fiction) are invited to send examples of their work and a short bio to admin@caymannewsservice.com. This can be in the form of Word docs or PDFs (so long as we can cut and paste), jpegs, pngs, gifs as well as videos in MPEG-4 or (much preferred) the iframe code.

“So this is a chance for budding standup comics, poets, writers and artists (whether they paint in oils or sketch cartoons) to let the community know about their work,” said CNS Manager Nicky Watson. “If you’ve made a short film, have video clips of skateboarding tricks, or you just have a knack of telling a joke — whatever your talent is, let us display it for you and brighten up everyone’s day. Children under the age of 18 must get a parent or guardian’s consent and please don’t do anything dangerous.

“There is a particular art that is deep-rooted in Cayman culture but often under-valued, and that is the art of storytelling,” Watson continued. “So if you have a clip of someone telling an anecdote that you’d like to share, let us know — with their permission, of course.”
