Melizarani is a spoken word poet, storyteller and journalist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Her rhymes are drawn from her wild curiosity in taboos and all the things her Mother told her not to do. Having been the first Malaysian to speak and perform poetry at Asia’s largest TEDx event, TEDxGateway (Mumbai), she has also gained first runner up at both The National Singapore Slam and Ubud Writers and Readers Festival slam.
Comforted by reviews of her poems being “unafraid to be Indian” and “unapologetically Malaysian’, her spoken word elements are also garnered from her deep academic interest, following her Master’s degree focused on the Malaysian Indian Identity representations.
Published in The Asian Centre Anthology of Malaysian Poetry in English, her poems have also been translated into BahasaMalaysia and published by (National Institute of Language and Literature) Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. She also currently organises Kuala Lumpur's only bimonthly spoken word poetry open mic, ’If Walls Could Talk’ and a poetry workshop series, 'Poets in Progress' on using spoken word for effective storytelling and public speaking, to voices of all ages.
This is a zero waste event which means we are committed to producing no waste during the event. We'll be serving finger food and freshly brewed coffee so be prepared: come with your own tumbler if you wish to taste the coffee! Once again, there will be no plastic or paper cups so do bring your own reusable cup or tumbler!
