Ahmed Magare is a multidisciplinary artist, poet & writer and is a member of Birmingham based international writers group, Writers Without Borders. He is originally from Somalia. He migrated with his family to the Netherlands during the Somali civil war, aged three. He lived with his family in the Netherlands for most of his teenage life and eventually decided to move to England to pursue his further education in the creative arts. In his writing, he explores the notion of hyper-dislocation and the experience living in the West, through the poetic and static lenses of self-reflection and perseverance. He navigates mentally between Somalia and living in the West, questioning the state of longing, belonging and comments on sociopolitical and cultural subjects inhabiting the space of global Somalis.
