haris' story

Haris Ahmed is a prolific poetry writer and a skilled and assured spoken word performer. 


A professional storyteller with his roots firmly in Bradford, he’s brought his authentic voice to collaborative cultural projects with national and international arts organisations including Common Wealth Theatre Company, Emergency Exit Arts and The Brick Box. 


As a poet, Haris has performed on stages across the country from major theatres to small independent venues and even national museums. He also featured on BBC Three’s ‘School of Hard Tricks’, making his TV debut by learning to perform magic as one of six apprentice magicians. 


Haris' first poetry collection ‘isit’, is due to be released, following a successful crowdfunding campaign, and his work has also been published in a number of anthologies and collections.
