Event description
Creative Writing Workshop with Malka Al Hadad and Rubina Bala

About this event

Creative Workshop:

In this workshop Rubina and Malka will work with a small group of asylum seekers and refugees to enable diverse forms of self-exploration and self-expression through writing.

Rubina Bala was born in Albania just after the fall of the country’s Communist regime and grew up through a chaotic political scene that has shaped her passion for writing and ensuring the right stories are told. She then immigrated to the UK where she completed a first class degree in Creative Writing and Journalism. Since then she has worked as an interpreter for asylum seekers as well as participating in writing projects in marginalised communities.

Malka Al-Haddad is an Iraqi academic Women's rights activist and poet. She has a Masters degree in Arabic Literature from Kufa University in Iraq. She is currently a graduate of the University of Leicester where she is studying for a Master of Arts degree in the Politics of Conflict and Violence. Her debut poetry collection, Birds Without Sky: Poems from Exile, (Harriman House Ltd, 2018) was longlisted for the Leicester Book of the Year award in 2018.
