I’m delighted to share that I will be reading poetry at Ilkley Literature Festival on Sunday 14 October 2018. I’ll be sharing the stage with Maya Chowdhry, Nick Makoha and Rishi Dastidar to promote the new anthology Filigree: Contemporary Black British Poetry, which we will all be published in.
Edited by Nii Parkes and Inscribe Series/Peepal Tree. Editor Kadija Sesay.
Host on the day is Pete Kalu.
Reading at Ilkley Festival is something I have always wanted to do. Being included in this anthology, which includes a wealth of Black British writers, is a huge honour. I am indebted to Nii Parkes and Kadija Sesay for their brilliant editing, encouragement, nurturing and support.
Featuring past and present writers from Malikas Poetry Kitchen.
Hope to see you there.
