Barbara Jenkins was born in Trinidad. She began writing in her seventies, and is the author of a novel and a collection of short stories. She has won awards including the Commonwealth Short Story Prize (Caribbean Region), the Wasafiri New Writing Prize, The Canute Brodhurst Prize, the Small Axe short story competition, My African Diaspora Short Story Contest and a Guyana Prize. Her new memoir, The Stranger who was Myself is an account of her childhood in Trinidad in the 1950s and her experiences in Wales in the 1960s.

Creative Conversations is funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
