- Author BiographyTIMOTHY CALLENDER (1946-1989) was born in Barbados where he became well known for his short stories during his student years at Combermere School. After graduating with special honours in English at the University of the West Indies, he took a three year teaching post in St Kitts during which time he continued research on 'The Woman in the West Indian Novel'. In 1981, Callender was granted a Commonwealth Scholarship Award which enabled him to study for an MA in Art Design and Education at the University of London Institute Of Education. He returned to Barbados in 1983, where he taught for many years at the University of the West Indies as well as at the St George Secondary School. In his later years, he taught Use of English, Creative Writing and Drama at the Barbados Community College. Callender experimented with many art forms and won awards for Short Stories, Playwriting and Art. He was an avid researcher of many diverse topics and themes, wrote numerous documentaries on art and art forms and held frequent art exhibitions. He also had a passion for music, studied the guitar and guitar music and was the author of many songs and poems. Like most West Indian authors, Callender's first stories were published in the Barbados Literary Journal (BIM). It So Happen (1975) was his first book of stories, and was followed by the books The Elements of Art (1977) and How Music Came to the Ainchan People (1979). Just before his untimely death, Callender was developing epic story poems, one of which was serialized over the local radio station and ran for about six months.
