It’s a huge pleasure to welcome Canadian-born poet Alycia Pirmohamed to Story Café. Alycia is studying poetry written by second-generation immigrant writers at the University of Edinburgh. Her own writing explores what it means to be the daughter of immigrants, and grapples with language loss, cultural identity and displacement.
Her work has recently appeared, or is forthcoming, in Prairie Schooner, The Adroit Journal, Poetry Book Society, Room Magazine, Best New British and Irish Poets 2018 and others. She won the 2018 Ploughshares Emerging Writers’ Contest in poetry.
Alycia will be talking about her work and reading from her forthcoming chapbook, Faces that Fled the Wind, winner of the 2018 BOATT Chapbook Prize.
