Reading her, one feels that were there to be a World Laureate, Imtiaz Dharker would be the only candidate (Carol Ann Duffy)

For our headline poetry event this year, we are thrilled to welcome poet, artist and video-filmmaker Imtiaz Dharker to Stroud Book Festival.

Born in Lahore in Pakistan, Imtiaz grew up in Glasgow and was awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2014. Her poetry collections include “Purdah”, “Postcards from God”, “The Terrorist at My Table”, “Leaving Fingerprints”, “Over the Moon” and her latest, “Luck is the Hook”, which was published in 2018.

Her poems have been broadcast widely on BBC Radios 3 and 4 as well as the BBC World Service and are also on the GCSE and A Level English syllabus.

For Stroud Book Festival, Imtiaz will discuss her work and read poems from across her published collections. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from one of our finest poets and performers.
