Acclaimed Glaswegian-based Palestinian poet-in-exile Iyad Hayatleh will present new poems of displacement and spiritual longing, accompanied by music and images which form part of his latest literary project.

Iyad is a poet and translator who was born and grew up in Syria. He has lived in Glasgow since 2000, and has taken part in many events here including translation and poetry workshops. He has given many readings nationwide, including at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, and published some of his poems in magazines and collective poetry books in Scotland in both Arabic and English.

His first collection, Beyond All Measure, was published by Survivor’s Press in 2007. He has collaborated with poet Tessa Ransford on a two-way translation project for a book, Rug of a Thousand Colours, featuring poems inspired by the Five Pillars of Islam, published by Luath Press in September 2012.
