Dr Marlé Hammond


During my years in college, I worked as a writer and a presenter of literary programs in one of Kuwait's national radio stations. I also participated in writing and presenting TV programmes focused on Arabic poetry in various private TV channels. After receiving my BA in Arabic literature, I worked as an Arabic language teacher in a public middle school from 2010 to late 2012. I moved to London in 2012 to do my Academic English Diploma at UCL. In 2014, I completed my MA in comparative literature at SOAS and started my Mphil. Outside the world of academia, I am most known as an Arabic poetess with poetry readings throughout the Arab world.
