Lotus Gatherers by Amali Rodrigo

(published by BLOODAXE BOOKS, ISBN9781780372877)

Why have I continuously participated in workshops abroad? My answer is very simple: encounter with great-talented poets and tutors coming from various places. This book was written by a poet Amali Rodrigo who was born and grew up in Sri Lanka, now living in London. I have been enormously inspired by her passion, creativity, and bold thinking since meeting in the workshop in 2012.
