Description

Read Regional: Bringing together readers and writers in Northern Libraries

6pm / Exploring Poetry workshop

Read and discuss contemporary poetry in a friendly environment with Antony Dunn.




7pm / Hafsah Aneela Bashir – The Celox and the Clot

Poetry reading + Q&A

Hafsah Aneela Bashir is a writer, playwright and performance poet based in Manchester.

Her work has been published in several anthologies.

She is founder and co-director of Outside The Frame Arts (OTFA), a collective platforming marginalised voices. She was recently awarded the prestigious Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowship 2019, has performed for numerous festivals, is creating theatre work of her own exploring womanhood and heritage and is still a sane mother of five.

Hafsah Aneela Bashir's debut poetry collection, The Celox and the Clot, is charged with a fierce compulsion to reveal and explore raw and open wounds from the domestic to political settings. With searingly and sharply observed detail, her poetry not only documents the tragic harm that war inflicts upon people but also explores relationships which are under strain closer to our domestic lives.




Read Regional is a celebration of brilliant new books from the North of England, which connect authors with readers in their local libraries. Founded by New Writing North in 2008 the campaign is funded by Arts Council England and is now produced in partnership with Hull Libraries and 22 other library authorities.

For the authors, Read Regional is not only an opportunity to meet readers and talk about their work, but also to celebrate the vitality of libraries as centres of creativity and learning for the whole community.
