Fawzia Kane, a former TLC mentee, has published her collection of poems titled Tantie Diablesse. Waterloo Press will launch the book at the end of January, a collection of poems that ‘range over Borgesian fantasies to historically informed evocations of the poet’s native Trinidad and Tobago’.
Fawzia Muradali Kane was born in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago and the poems reflect not only her own experiences as a child, but also draw on the history of the area and the country’s changeover from being a colony to independence. Fawzia came to the UK on a scholarship to study architecture and now lives in London.
Fawzia’s poetry has been published in several journals including Agenda, Brittle Star, Poetry Review, Poetry London, Poetry Wales, and Rialto.
