Praise for 4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE:
‘Who says the Goddess slumbers, her eyes shuttered against the modern world? In this collaborative offering of new poems by brave voices, She sings, soars, and speaks her own name without fear. Sunnah, Sharan, Roshni and Sheena have given us verse patterned in henna, garlanded with gold thread, alive and alert to the complicated intersections of being both brown and woman in the world’s gaze…We’re in a glorious age of Asian women’s writing; work like this confirms it with confidence and promising fire.’ – Shivanee Ramlochan, Shortlisted for the 2018 Forward Poetry Prize for Best Debut Collection for Everyone Knows I Am a Haunting.
‘This is such an important book. The collective voice of 4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE is powerful and poignant, all at once political, angry, intimate and vulnerable. I have been waiting a long time to read a collection of work that lays witness, in such an honest way, to the lives of the women I am, I know and I love.’ – Shagufta K Iqbal, author of Jam is for Girls.
