Sareh Farmand was born in Tehran, Iran at the start of the Islamic Revolution, and grew up in Vancouver, BC. Her first book of poems, Pistachios in my Pocket (At Bay Press), follows a narrative arch that tells the story of her family’s escape from Iran and their experiences as first wave Iranians immigrants to Canada. 

Sareh holds degrees in International Relations and Education from UBC and is a 2018 graduate of SFU’s The Writing Studio. She lives in Vancouver, BC-- the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

 Sareh can be found on Instagram (@thewritersway), Facebook (@thewritersway), Twitter (@tweetsarehd), and her website (www.sarehfarmand.com).
