A celebration of writing by women of Jewish and Muslim heritages

It is not often enough that we hear of Jews and Muslims being under the same roof
in the same book sharing their creative and cultural heritage. 

On Sunday 22nd of November I will be sharing my poetry at this event. Come and join in the love with other guest poets and writers for the evening, Sherry Ashworth, Becky Prestwich Hine,  Julia Davis, Yasmin Babiker, Jacqueline Lewis and Shamshad Khan.

The collection was produced by Commonword under their Crocus books inprint.

Manchester University ISOC’s Mocktail and Poetry Event 12/03/15

What a wonderful turnout and a brilliant opportunity to share poems with some truly inspirational people organised by Manchester University ISOC! The night was pizza filled, mocktailed and full of spiritually lyrical bliss! I performed, as did the soulful Yasmin Babiker, the hard hitting Naima Ali and the inspiring Asma Shatwan! And a visit to Whitworth Art Gallery was the cherry on top! Amazing place if you haven’t been yet! X 

The 7 Lessons

Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind.

Do nothing out of guilt, or for prestige, status, money or approval alone.

Be generous with your time and your resources and with giving credit and, especially, with your words.

Build pockets of stillness into your life.

Maya Angelou famously said, ‘When people tell you who they are, believe them’. But even more importantly, when people try to tell you who you are, don’t believe them.

Presence is far more intricate and rewarding an art than productivity. As Annie Dillard memorably put it, “how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”

Debbie Millman captures our modern predicament beautifully: “Expect anything worthwhile to take a long time”.
