Series: The Sea-Migrations Tour

Join the PTC as we tour the UK with leading Somali poet Asha Lul Mohamud Yusuf and award-winning English poet Clare Pollard this October.

The Sea-Migrations Tour celebrates a decade of friendship and collaboration between Asha Lul Mohamud Yusuf and Clare Pollard, and marks the publication of a new collection published by the PTC in partnership with Bloodaxe Books. Asha Lul and Clare are both powerful and inventive poets, whose poems tackle politics, womanhood and patriarchal structures each in their own way. Their joint readings are always explosive, a dazzling showcase of powerful female-voice writing. We look forward to seeing you in Manchester, London, Sheffield or Birmingham!

The Sea-Migrations is the first full-length collection by Asha Lul. Winner of an English PEN Award, it presents a selection of Asha Lul's poems from the past decade alongside beautiful translations by award-winning English poet Clare Pollard together with Somali scholars Said Jama Hussein and Maxamed Xasan Alto.
