Janice Whyne is a community development practitioner, currently based in Indonesia. She’s a Londoner by birth, a Jamaican by heritage, upbringing and at her core.  Her writing began in early childhood; from prose filled Christmas cards, to songs and poetry.  Recently much of her poetry has been initiated by something heard while in conversation, or that stood out in something she was viewing or listening to.

She ventured into the world of Spoken Word four years ago; participating in her first open mic at the Poetry Cafe, London in 2016.  She was 1st runner up of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival Poetry Slam 2019 and was one of the featured poets for 100 Thousand Poets for Change’s Global Reading in June this year.  Her poetry, as well as other content appears on her website: www.janicewhyne.com Instagram: @JJsMuse or Facebook: JJ’s Muse.
