Is it About a Bicycle?: Writers in Conversation is an online series presented by Solas Nua that brings together contemporary Irish writers or writers based in Ireland, with leaders and experts from a variety of sectors to explore their shared interests across disciplines. The title comes from Flann O’Brien’s classic comic novel, The Third Policeman, a meandering tale about the nature of time, death, and the absurdity of human existence.
Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe is a poet, pacifist and fabulist. Founder of the Play It Forward Fellowships, she is poetry editor at Skein Press and Fallow Media, and contributing editor with The Stinging Fly. Auguries of a Minor God, her first poetry collection, was published with Faber & Faber in 2021.
Anmol Tikoo is a film-maker and educator, most recently at the United World College in India, where he taught philosophy and film alongside short courses on development and ecological education. His work has been featured in media outlets and publications, including The New Yorker, The Wire, and Time Out. He has worked on Indian and international documentary and film projects, and was the Residency Manager for Sangam House International Writers Residency Program in Bangalore.
