Anna Dolezal‘s writing uncovers her response, as an immigrant, to cultural expectations in Britain. She considers her life and generations of her mother’s family in India, the politics of coloniality and the way everyday life is still affected by those power relations. WW2 forced her father to leave Czechoslovakia, spending the rest of his life stateless. How she feels and how she appears, often at odds, is an interface that will always be with her. Collective experience and insight is shared by connecting with others and Malika’s Poetry Kitchen offers her, as a poet, a global view of fightback.
