About this title

About the Author:

Celo Kulaghoe (also Celestine Kulagoe) is from Solomon Islands. He attended Marist Brothers School on Guadalcanal and High School on Bougainville 1961-1968. In 1969 he joined the Marist Brothers Teaching Order as a novice but left in 1974. He studied for the Diploma in Education at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji 1972-1974, where he participated in various creative writing activities. His poetry has been published in such periodicals as the USP students' UNISPAC, the Mana section of Pacific Islands Monthly, Kakamora Reporter, News Drum, Solomon Star, Solomon Toktok and Youth Today, and in such books as Lali, Possibilities, Some Modern Poetry from Solomon Islands and Twenty Four Poems of the Solomons. After teaching at Catholic Secondary School, Honiara, 1975-1975, he returned to the USP to study for the degree of Bachelor of Education in 1977, graduating in 1981. His collection of poetry, Where Leaves Had Fallen, was published in 1980 and republished with a teachers' guide in 1991. From 1981-1990 he worked for the Solomon Islands public service as an administrator. He is the author of Uvipira (Roots in a Season): Three Stories and he contributed poems to Raetemaot: Creative Writing from Solomon Islands. Failing eyesight compelled him to retire in 1990. In 1992 he summarily ceased writing poetry following a dream in which the Blessed Virgin Mary told him that writing poetry was no longer for him; he was told also to discontinue use of his pen name, Celo Kulaghoe. Since then he has found it impossible to put words together in poetry though he continues to "write" in prose. He is now recording on tape a philosophical work entitled "The Woman of Genesis 3:15 Revisited."

Frederick Butafa is from Malaita, Solomon Islands, although he was born in Honiara. He attended King George VI School before doing his first year of law at the University of the South Pacific's Laucala Campus in Fiji. He was attached to the Oceanic Centre for Arts and Culture, and studied with Niuean writer and artist John Pule. Frederick will continue his degree work in law at USP's Emalus Campus in Vanuatu.
