LAILA MALIK is a desisporic settler and writer living in Adobigok, traditional land of Indigenous communities that include the Anishinaabe, Seneca, Mohawk Haudenosaunee, and Wendat. Her work has been widely published in literary magazines and journals, including Contemporary Verse 2, Canthius, The New Quarterly, Ricepaper, Qwerty, Room, Sukoon, The Bangalore Review, and Archetype. Malik's essays have been longlisted for four different creative nonfiction contests and she was a fellow at the Banff Centre for Creative Arts in 2021. Her debut collection archipelago was included in CBC's Spring 2023 Poetry Collections to Watch For.
Reviews
"In Laila Malik's archipelago, we face the future like we face the sea, or the desert: any great expanse we try to love, cross, or become. Malik's vocabulary is a bridge--littered with secrets, inside jokes, careful references--that carries us over various landscapes, oceans, the wreckages of capitalism, colonialism and climate collapse." --Sanna Wani, author of My Grief, the Sun

"Grief can make an island of anyone: these poems can bring you to new shores." --Nasser Hussain, author of SKY WRI TEI NGS

"There is so much movement in archipelago, but the meditations on home vis-a-vis the Gulf are most exciting for their rarity--this may be the first full-length poetry collection in English to take the Gulf itself as its subject matter." --Noor Naga, Scotiabank Giller Prize shortlisted-author of If an Egyptian Cannot Speak English
