Providential : poems by Colin Channer( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"Channer has written a fine set of poems that, like classical myth, start with the search for the lost father and end with the found son, the poet in the process replacing the lost father with a found self."⁰́₄Russell Banks"This is such a brilliant 'toast,' this swift and pained and skimming history of Jamaica sweetly written by a poet with a cop dad. Providential does justice to the diasporic reality of places being 'there but not there,' including of course America, the poet's current home. Lush lists and light-footedness and keen word choices all restore a limb to our comprehension of colonial trauma and make this one of the most lucid and telling poetry books of this exact time."⁰́₄Eileen Myles, author of Snowflake"Channer writes with a moving vulnerability and much lyric grace, revealing new facets to familiar themes⁰́₄home, family, history, and the evolving journey of self. A universal, timeless meditation."⁰́₄Chris Abani"This one is an audacious and brilliant take on noir, written with pitch-perfect rhythm and a keen eye for supple, limber turns."⁰́₄Lorna GoodisonChanner achieves an intimate and lyric meditation on family, policing, loss, and violence, but the work is enlivened by humor, tenderness, and the rich possibilities that come from honest reflection. Combined with a capacity to offer physical landscapes with painterly sensitivity and care, Providential is a work of "heartical" insight and vulnerability
So much things to say : over 100 poets from the first ten years of the Calabash International Literary Festival by Kwame Senu Neville Dawes( Book )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
"Robert Pinsky and Derek Walcott anchor this groundbreaking, soulful poetry collection. Contributors include: Robert Pinsky, Derek Walcott, Elizabeth Alexander, Amiri Baraka, Martin Espada, Terrance Hayes, Valzyna Mort, Sonia Sanchez, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Patricia Smith, Natasha Trethewey, Staceyann Chin, and 88 others. Imagine a night of a hundred poets reading their work to an audience of intensely engaged, responsive, and lively people-say three thousand of them. They are a loud bunch when it is time to make noise, but they are silent as congregants at prayer when the poets' language entrances them. Imagine the reading taking place under a tent pitched on a grassy lawn that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Imagine that this is not the north coast of Jamaica, with its cliche of white sands and coconut trees, a place glutted with cruise ship passengers and bewildered tourists; imagine instead a rugged coastline, a landscape full of the kind of character we find in the weather-beaten faces of wise old folk; imagine fishermen, farmers, ordinary workers, schoolchildren, and traveling people moving around as if they have been in this place forever and as if they all belong ... Imagine one hundred poets, some whose names you know and some you have never heard of, stepping onto the stage, opening their mouths and hearts, and singing out poems of great variety, complexity, beauty, and passion ... Imagine laughter and tears, imagine sighs of familiarity and moans of pain, imagine tragedies enacted in the words that move through the shelter of the tent; imagine a poem like a fist, or a sharply painful open palm, or the tender caress of fingers, or the firm grasp of a handshake. Imagine stories dropping like seeds into the ground and growing rapidly and wildly all around you. This is the setting and mood of the greatest little festival in the greatest little village in the greatest little country in the world, and this anthology is what the festival would look like were all 100 poets who have read at Calabash over the years to come together on a late-May weekend to read. So Much Things to Say is a unique gathering of a group of poets who represent at least one reckoning of the place of contemporary poetry in 2010"--

Lover's rock by Colin Channer( Book )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Providential by Colin Channer( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Channer's debut poetry collection achieves an intimate and lyric meditation on family, policing, loss, and violence, but the work is enlivened by humor, tenderness, and the rich possibilities that come from honest reflection. Combined with a capacity to offer physical landscapes with painterly sensitivity and care, a graceful mining of the nuances of Jamaican patwa and American English, and a judicious use of metaphor and similie, Providential is a work of "heartical" insight and vulnerability. Not since Claude McKay's Constab Ballads of 1912 has a writer attempted to tackle the unlikely literary figure of the Jamaican policeman. Now, over a century later, Channer draws on his own knowledge of Jamaican culture, on his complex relationship with his father (a Jamaican policeman), and frames these poems within the constantly humane principles of Rasta and reggae. The poems within Providential manage to turn the intricate relationships between a man and his father, a man and his mother, a man and his country, and a man and his children into something akin to grace

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
E. Lynn Harris and Eric Jerome Dickey, Colin Channer and Marcus Major have joined forces in Got to Be Real, a compilation of fresh, funny, and honest love stories. Each one is a unique look at love in the modern, urban age. Harris' leading man faces one of his greatest fears with a Valentine's gift that could change his life forever. Dickey takes readers on a trip south of the border that leads to a steamy relationship where race and a language barrier creates no deterrent. Jamaica is the hot spot where Channer weaves his titillating tale of people in the music industry. A certified womanizer meets his match in Major's provocative story set in Philadelphia. These four popular African-American writers have put together a treasury of stories that is as sexy and entertaining as it is candid and thought-provoking
