‘Divali in Kessock’ by Arun Sood

We’re strong believers that poetry should be heard as well as read, so we asked the poets in the book to send us audio recordings of themselves reading their work. We’ll be sharing some of these pieces from our YouTube channel over the next couple of months: we hope that you enjoy them as we have!

The first poem we’re featuring is ‘Divali in Kessock,’ by Arun Sood. You can see Arun’s words in print when the book is launched in Edinburgh on Oct. 29th at the Word Power Radical Book Fair. Click here for more information on the launch. Enjoy!
