Sareh Farmand is a published poet and graduate of Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio. Her debut full-length poetry collection, Pistachios in my Pocket (forthcoming Fall 2022 with At Bay Press) tells the story of her family’s escape from Iran during the Iranian Revolution and their experiences as first wave Iranian immigrants to Canada. Sareh has published poems in Sky Island Journal, The Elephant Journal, The Grilled Cheese Magazine, Pelak52 Magazine, and SFU’s The Writer’s Studio Anthology: Emerge18.

Sareh enjoys literary readings and has read at The New Dominion Reading Series, SPiEL Vancouver reading series, and the West Vancouver Art Museum. Her current work covers themes of war, home, migration, and belonging.

When Sareh is not writing, she can be found cultivating other creative pursuits and dragging her family and friends up mountains and down coastlines in search of debauchery. You can find her musings on everything from writing and the arts on Instagram @thewritersway or on Twitter  @tweetsarehd. 

Sareh gratefully acknowledges that the land on which she writes and lives is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.


Success! You're on the list.
