Divya M. Persaud is a writer, composer, and planetary scientist of Indo-Caribbean heritage from New Jersey. She is the recipient of The (Great) Indian Poetry Collective Editor’s Choice Award for her experimental book of poetry, "do not perform this" (GIPC, 2018), and the author of poetry collections "color" (2016) and "de caelo et tellure" (2015). Divya is additionally the composer of THEY WILL BE FREE: a song cycle (2017), an album that fuses epic poetry and contemporary classical music. Her writing and music incorporate her polymathic background and transcend form to discuss memory and the double-diaspora experience. Divya is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in planetary imaging in the United Kingdom.
