Project

Home is a haven from all kinds of storms. And in a time when everyone was confined to their homes, sheltered from the virus and fear, I have lost the home of my childhood. That loss has been my inspiration and starting point for this writing project.

My aim during my stay at Faber is to research (about origin, identity, home, family belonging), to work on new poems and shape the structure of my new book, ‘Nido’ (nest).
