taking our culture forward

March 2018 sees the publication of the third poetry book by the Indian-born Manx poet, Usha Kishore.

As one of the leading poets working in the Isle of Man today, we spoke to Usha Kishore about her poetry, its themes and concerns, and this latest book, 'Immigrant,' which investigates the political, cultural and linguistic spaces inhabited by first-generation immigrants to Britain. It is a postcolonial work experimenting in language and structure, highlighting a quest for identity and home.

The book was published with help from a grant received from Culture Vannin. More about our grants can be found here: Culture Vannin grants.

Usha Kishore also gave readings of three of her poems, available here:
