Reem Abbas

Reem Abbas is a Yemeni-Syrian reader, writer and lover of poems and, if really feeling it, the occasional short-story. She read her poems at SolidariTee’s Voices of Voyage poetry evening and is happy to have published her first poem, “Borderline Ghazal”, in the 258th issue of the PNR. She is currently writing her Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge on the Persian artistic and classical poetic influences in the poetry of Basil Bunting. Reem enjoys sipping on loose-leaf teas, listening to the National Arab Orchestra, and improves her Farsi by indulging in gorgeous Iranian cinema.

Reem Abbas was part of the PTC's first UNDERTOW programme in 2022.
