FARIHA RÓISÍN

How To Cure A Ghost (Abrams, 2019) is Róisín’s debut Poetry Collection.

It explores shame, ancestral trauma and violence—weaving in Róisin’s personal experience of abuse at the hands of her mother, while also being trapped in a body, time and era where she’s being forced to confront the many things that have haunted her.

Being In Your Body (Abrams, 2019) is a journal for women, femmes and non-binary folks to work through body dysmorphia.

This journal is a conversation starter on how to talk about what ails us only with our bodies so that we can start (finally, collectively) moving towards self love and acceptance on a holistic global level.
