Description

The Things I Would Tell You: British Muslim Women Write - Aliyah Hasinah Holder, Triska Hamid, Sabrina Mahfouz and Shazea Quraishi, in conversation

South London poet and playwright Sabrina Mahfouz has edited a new anthology that blows away the narrow image of the ‘Muslim Woman’, with contributions from literary heavyweights like Kamila Shamsie to emerging spoken word artists like Aliyah Hasinah Holder. Here, three of the featured writers join her to discuss the project and their own contributions: Birmingham performance poet Aliyah Hasinah Holder, British Iraqi Kurdish journalist Triska Hamid and Pakistani-born, Canadian-raised, British-living poet, playwright and translator Shazea Quraishi, join her for readings and conversation.
