• Rodrigo, Amali

    Amali Rodrigo grew up in Sri Lanka and is now based in London where she is researching a PhD as well as working as associate lecturer at Lancaster University. Her first full collection of poems The Lotus Gatherers was published by Bloodaxe in 2016. Her work is informed by a strong sense that there are many different realities, an idea that is reflected in an alertness to the surreal and to the spiritual.
