Reclaiming the Feminine Voice
Friday 11 July, 18:30 – 20:00
BL Conference Centre, £8/ £6 / £5
With Young Poet Laureate for London Warsan Shire, Belinda Zhawi, Ribka Sibhatu and Chinwe Azubuike. Introduced and moderated by Jessica Horn, feminist writer and activist.
Crossing generational and geographical borders, we bring together a group of African women poets to share their works and reflect on what it means to write and use one’s voice as a woman. Covering experiences of gender-based violence and migration, through to questions of creative freedom, pleasure and transgression, these African women poets are using their voices to reclaim their rightful place.
