I'm looking to write poetry on the subject of my maternal grandparents’ deaths and funerals. They were migrants from Hong Kong in the 1950's and as such they had various wishes for their funerals to be traditional Hong Kong Hakka, but at the same time they lived most of their life in West Yorkshire and were buried in an Anglican cemetery. As such, I'm interested in displays of death that walk lines between traditions, cultures and communities, as well as broader experiences of multi-generational migrant death.
