Michelle K. Angwenyi

Michelle K. Angwenyi is a writer from Nairobi, Kenya. Her current literary engagements lie at the intersection of her background in biology and her explorations of time and memory.

Michelle has a chapbook, Grey Latitudes, which is out now from the African Poetry Book Fund and Akashic Books.

“years and years later, the reconciliation, it happens in a dream. We stand face to face for the first time – maybe the first time ever – and in her hand, palm open to the sky, are rings: one for each promise made, unkept, but here again, a complete circle, glimmering in that selfsame sunshine from years ago.”
