Fareh Malik is a BIPOC artist from Hamilton, Ontario, as well as a seasoned spoken word poet and established author. Fareh was named the 2022 RBC PEN Canada New Voices Award winner, as well as the 2023 winner of the Austin Clarke Prize for Literary Excellence. 

Fareh’s debut book STREAMS THAT LEAD SOMEWHERE was published in 2022 with Mawenzi House Publishers, which won the Hamilton Literary Award for Poetry. Fareh was named a finalist for the 2021 Best of the Net anthology, and was honored with the 2021 Garden Project grant to explore interdisciplinary work. 

Fareh’s work has been described as critical, yet sanguine; poetry that often explores the intersection of racialization and mental illness, while maintaining a silver lining on its horizon. He loves to tell the story of his struggle, and of his community around him, in the hope that others can find inspiration and companionship in it. Fareh is currently a poet and author working on his second book.

Fareh is represented by Noelle Falcis Math and Amanda Orozco.
