… anthologies are like buses … Delighted that my poem ‘Welcome’ is included in ‘Verse Matters’ a new anthology edited by Rachel Bower and Helen Mort. The book has evolved from the legendary ‘Verse Matters’ spoken word movement started by Rachel and now run by an intersectional feminist arts collective. Also proud to see work included from Bashar Farahat, whom I had the privilege to mentor for the ‘Art of Migration’ project, and from Mimi Mesfin, with whom I’ve collaborated for several years. The anthology has just been reviewed in the Yorkshire Post.
