Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe is a poet, pacifist and fabulist. Auguries of a Minor God, her first collection, (Faber & Faber, 2021) was shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize, John Pollard Foundation International Poetry Prize and the Butler Literary Award, and chosen as a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, National Poetry Day Recommendation, Shakespeare & Co. Year of Reading Selection, and a Book of the Year by The Irish Times and The Irish Independent.

During her residency, Nidhi will work on a creative monograph titled Eye and the Magpie, on the subject of Monet’s ‘La Pie’, an early painting in which the Impressionist landscape was born.
