Hala Mukhair

  • Young Northern Writers' Award (Highly Commended, 15-18), 2022

Hala Mukhair was born, and currently lives, in Sheffield, United Kingdom. She is a poet whose work often covers themes of trauma, relationships, death, loss and social issues. She believes that poetry has the ability to be cathartic and can allow us to move past difficult experiences, thereby strengthening the connection we have with our inner selves. Hala’s deep interest in psychology contributes to the introspective quality of her work, as she wishes to dissect the human experience in order to find a way to understand it.


‘I’m extremely excited about being highly commended. I feel very proud and honoured. I believe that this will boost the confidence I have in my work, therefore pushing me to make the most of future opportunities.’
