Lozan Yamolky – Surrey Muse


Lozan Yamolky is an Iraqi Canadian poet of Kurdish origin who is launching her second poetry book titled ‘Counting Waves’ (Silver Bow Publishing) this year. Last year, she had published her first book ‘I’m No hero’. Lozan began to write poetry in her teens but kept it a secret till 2013 when she found a writer’s group in Maple Ridge near where she lived, the Holy Wow Poets of Canada. Lozan began to attend regular group meetings, reciting and writing new poems, and soon she had her manuscript ready. Lozan lives in Vancouver and works as a freelance interpreter and translator for both Kurdish and Arabic languages. She also worked as an interpreter with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Canadian Embassy, and the Australian Embassy in Turkey. Lozan was born in Baghdad as the fifth of eleven children; eight girls and three boys. She left Iraq in 1994 and moved to Ankara Turkey as an asylum seeker before migrating with her family to Vancouver in 1995.
