Rookie [LFR] (25 July 1979 / Arawa, Bougainville Island)

Biography of Leonard Fong Roka

I am from the Panguna District of Bougainville in the South Pacific.

I write about my island's political, social and cultural issues. We have gone through war as a result of long periods of relegation and exploitation firstly from colonial powers then much later under the Papua New Guineans that rule our island

Writing is the only way I turn to promote my island and people and also, it is the way I am releasing my emotions to the world.

Since 2011 I have published poems in Keith Jackson & Friends: PNG Attitude (http: //asopa.typepad.com) and my own blog Leonard Fong Roka (http: //lfongroka.blogspot.com) .

I need to further market my island.
