Rasiqra Revulva

Cephalopography 2.0 is as much a passionate celebration of cephalopods in all their plurality and finery as it is a collection of poems exploring human identity and experience through the lens of these marine animals. Through experimental takes on traditional poetic forms such as ghazals, tankas and cinquains, as well as more contemporary forms, Rasiqra Revulva delves into ecopoetics and marine biology, creating unique and beautifully composed poems.

Cephalopography 2.0 plunges into the depths of human experience to pull out diverse perspectives of how cephalopods and humanity are linked together in ways that stretch beyond the land and the sea. (From Wolsak & Wynn)

Rasiqra Revulva is a queer writer, editor and one half of the experimental electronic duo The Databats. She is an editor of the climate crisis anthology Watch Your Head: A Call to Action and has written two chapbooks of poetry.
