Michael Creighton

Michael Creighton is a Delhi-based poet who has been living in the city for a decade and a half. Drawing inspiration from sights, sounds and smells of the city to find beauty in its chaos, Michael released his book of poetry, New Delhi Love Songs in 2017. His poetry conjures up images of a love found in simplicity. As a middle school teacher, he also recognises the need for free and accessible spaces. Hence, he got involved in The Community Library Project, which seeks to set up libraries across the city, in partnership with NGOs like Nayi Disha. These libraries offer an inclusive space for people to come together and share their ideas and opinions.
