Gulf is Michelle’s debut poetry chapbook. It’s published by Yavanika Press, 2021. Multiple poems in this book were longlisted for the TOTO prize for creative writing 2021. Each poem in this chapbook addresses the word ‘Gulf’ in its own way as the poet endeavours to make sense of her place in a world fraught with the universal feelings of being lost, rejected, and alienated.
