Hari Alluri

Hari Alluri (he/him/siya) is a migrant poet, editor, and facilitator of Filipinx & South Asian descent living and writing on unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, səl̓ilwətaʔɬ, qiqéyt, kʷikʷəƛ̓əm lands. His work embodies collaboration, the way a hip hop sample seeks, the way that any altar is an ode to the first altar. The poems—even when they remember, forget, and imagine elsewhere or elsetime—encounter place as layers of memory: arrivals, departures, resistances, transformations. Say craft, say movement. Give thanks. Author of The Flayed City (Kaya Press), co-founding editor at Locked Horn Press, and Writer-in-Residence at The Capilano Review, his work appears widely in print and online, most recently in Best of the Net 2021 (via Split This Rock). An award-winning writer whose next reading is likely soon, Hari’s recent collaborations are through VoC, Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, Massy Arts, The Digital Sala, Community Building Art Works, Carnegie Centre, and BIPOC Writing Community.
