We’re delighted to welcome award-winning poet Imtiaz Dharker to Durham. Born in Pakistan and brought up in Scotland, Imtiaz’s poems question how we make sense of concepts such as faith, freedom and home. Her collections include Postcards from God, I Speak for the Devil, The Terrorist at My Table, Leaving Fingerprints and Over the Moon. Her latest is Luck is the Hook.

Imtiaz was awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2014, and reads with other poets at Poetry Live! events all over the country to more than 25,000 students a year. For a number of years now, her poems have been taught on the UK national curriculum. Carol Ann Duffy said of her, ‘Were there to be a World Laureate, Imtiaz Dharker would be the only candidate.’

Suitable for ages 12+ / KS3, KS4 and KS5

Themes: Conflict, Displacement, Freedom, Home, Faith, Poetry, SMSC
