BWS 10.05.17: Ayesha Chatterjee


Ayesha Chatterjee‘s poetry has appeared in journals across the globe as well as on the official website of Canada’s Parliamentary Poet Laureate, George Elliott Clarke. Her first collection, The Clarity of Distance, was published in 2011 by Bayeux Arts.  She is President of the League of Canadian Poets.

Ayesha’s next book is titled Bottles and Bones–“bottles” marking the cues many of the included poems take from the world of perfumery, and “bones” for her mother, who passed away two years ago and also features in the collection. You can sneak a peek at the new poems at the links below ahead of Ayesha’s May 10 appearance!

Three Poems (The Rusty Toque) 

“Rose Absolute” (Autumn Sky Poetry Daily)

Ayesha Chatterjee visits Brockton Writers Series on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in our new home, Glad Day Bookshop, 499 Church St., Toronto, at 6:30pm (PWYC) alongside Mary Lou Dickinson, Catherine Hernandez, Ian Keteku and a special guest talk, “From Tarot to Creativity”, by Hoa Nguyen!
