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 works in various publications including Sky Island Journal and Pelak52.
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 she is not writing poetry, she can be found screenwriting, consulting, cultivating other creative pursuits, and exploring mountains and coastlines with her family and friends. You can find her musings on everything from writing and the arts on Instagram (@thewritersway), Facebook (@thewritersway), and 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.
