writer | psychologist | community catalyst
Scherezade Siobhan is a psychologist, community catalyst, writer and performance poet who uses textual, aural, visual and kinesthetic experiences in a combination of semantics and somatics to explore the landscape of mental health, narrative memory, inter-generational trauma, gender & violence. As a WoC for whom English is a secondary language, she is interested in the politics of linguistics, in the transience of the tongue, in its physical & spiritual enormities as signified by the urdu word “Zubaan” which stands for both : tongue and language. Owing to this, her writing is unapologetically polyglottal and sometimes refuses to translate itself to a convenient assortment of meanings.
