Front cover of Red Winds

Red Winds is the third collection from Irma Upex-Huggins, the others being Aloes and Brown Sugar 1991, and Charcoal Woman 1993.

The poems and prose in this collection were written as a result of the period Irma spent as a VSO volunteer in Tanzania - working with women's groups in remote villages. They aim to reflect the rhythms and spirit of 'traditional' Tanzania through its harsh beauty, situations and vibrant colours.

Irma was born on Antigua and she writes with a Caribbean swing and slang. She will be donating her proceeds from sales of the book to VSO Tanzania to support its work with women.

Red Winds launched in April 2018. You can order the paperback for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page or Amazon, ISBN 978-1-911587-07-1. Or download the Kindle version. Please contact us at if you have any delivery queries
