Prior registration required at [email protected] Nejoud Al-Yagout has lived in many places globally, including China, Pakistan, UAE, Italy and the UK. Since her father was an ambassador of Kuwait, she lived a nomadic life. She returned to Kuwait after the invasion. Al-Yagout currently works as a librarian and loves being surrounded by books and students. She developed a passion for writing poetry in her early teens. In her own words, it was a cathartic way to express emotions buried deep inside. Her poetry includes themes such as transcendence of suffering, the awareness of the ego and the presence of the higher self. She also explores grief, loss and identity crisis to reflect the state of our collective consciousness. Her debut book, This is an imprint, presents poems which reflect such states, whilst offering a higher perspective of being which transcends thought.
