Samiha Radcliffe

Tutor - poetry I (online)

Samiha Radcliffe is a poet and creative writing tutor. She was born in Canada and raised in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Samiha’s ancestors originated in India/Persia/Russia and England/France/The Isle of Man. 'Sometimes when I look at all those threads I’m astonished I landed here in this unique Kiwi culture. It reminds me that we all bring so much with us when we sit down at the page.'

Samiha has studied English Literature and completed a Diploma in Creative Writing through Whitireia NZ. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Victoria University and her poetry has been published in the literary journals 4th Floor and Turbine.

'I’m continually inspired by the courage of the students I work with. Making time to follow the call of our writing voice can be an incredibly vulnerable process, and a masterful juggling act! I love that I get to be part of that journey. When a writer steps outside their comfort zone the rewards are always huge – for them and for me.'
