Poetry Book Launch: Elida Silvey ‘Nothings’
Focusing on the edges of emotion - teetering between memories, minuscule moments and half-made up stories - Elida focuses her work on the mundanity of love. Mixing her observations of living in-between cultures with her brazen love for the textures of life, she composes vignettes using the alphabet. Images brim like an overfilled glass, begging you to take a sip.
Elida is a Mexican-American writer, poet and language artist living in London, UK. Her self-published books HOME IN LIMBO and NOTHINGS (coming soon) explore cinematic poetry centered around those closest to her as an exploration of the effects love and longing have on identity. She is currently a staff writer at Sunstroke Magazine and works full-time within the publishing industry.
