Book launch for ‘When Saira met Sarah’ Oct 2014!

Last night was the book launch at 3Minute Theatre in Manchester, for a project started a year ago that brought Muslim and Jewish women together through writing. I was delighted to be part of this venture and to see my poems in print alongside such talented writers such as Yasmin Babiker, Julia Davis, Shamshad Khan, Leah Thorn, Jackie, Maleeha and Becky Prestwich to name a few, is an absolute pleasure.
Spearheaded by Sherry Ashworth and Anjum Malik with final say by Peter Kalu of Commonword, the anthology is now available from Crocus Books published by Commonword. Thanks to everyone who supports and has faith in my writing even when I don’t but especially Peter Kalu, Chris Jam, Martin De Mello and Zahid Hussain for all your constructive feedback! Xxx
