Today, Alycia Pirmohamed reads from her newly published poetry collection, Hinge, an imaginative pamphlet which carefully guides the reader on their own distinctive journey to those other-lands created by migration. (15 min approx.) Alycia Pirmohamed’s poetry, often situated in the surreal, uses the metaphor of landscape and the natural world to reflect on wider themes of belonging, cultural dissonance, and homeland.

Alycia Pirmohamed is a Canadian-born poet living in Scotland. Alycia recently completed her PhD at the University of Edinburgh and is co-founder of the Scottish BAME Writers Network. Her second pamphlet, Hinge (ignition press), is this season’s Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice. Alycia won this year's Edwin Morgan Poetry Award with her collection The Ghosts that Visit Us as We Dream.
