Mina Gorji

Mina Gorji was born in Iran and lives in Cambridge, where she is Associate Professor at the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge and a fellow of Pembroke college.

Her debut, Art of Escape (Carcanet, 2020),  a Telegraph ‘Book of the Month’, has been described as a collection of “exquisite miniatures that suggest worlds” (FiveBooks, 2020), “intricate, considered poems which encourage us to democratise our attention and empathy” (Guardian).

She has published poems in Poetry Review, Magma, London Magazine, bath magg, bad lilies and the Forward Book of Poetry amongst others. She has also written a study of John Clare’s poetry, and essays on weeds, rudeness, little things and listening; a lyric-critical essay, Listening for Stars, was published in Poetry Review (2021).
