We are thrilled to be launching sanctuary, an anthology written by the participants of our Brown Girls Write programme. This is a free event and booking is not required. Come along to hear readings from the anthology and to celebrate its launch with us!

Brown Girls Write is a weekly writing workshop for all women of colour who are interested in nurturing their creative writing skills. The group worked with writer Tahmina Ali to try different types of writing and to develop their own poetry. If you would like to take part in our future writing workshops, sign up for Brown Girls Write here.

Brown Girls Write is a programme created by Creative Associate Sharmin Islam who has drawn on her own experiences as a South Asian woman pursuing a career in the arts.
