Why I write…

Malika Booker is a British poet and artist. She is considered a pioneer of the spoken word movement and is writer-in-residence at charity First Story. She explores surrendering our ego in the ritual of writing

Poetry is a beautiful art form. Its power lies in the ability to transform ordinary experiences by capturing a moment or emotion. Writing poetry is a privilege and struggle, in part because we need to create in ourselves a new way of observing the world, capturing microscopic moments as ingredients for our work.
