A compelling afternoon giving a voice to regional creative writing talents, as part of events to mark International Women’s Day.
Another chance to hear original work from Sampad’s creative writing initiative Birmingham > Brick Lane > Bangladesh. Ably supported by Midlands-based actor, Vimal Korpal, female writers will share powerful narratives exploring their family lives and personal journeys, produced during a series of intensive workshops with writer Paven Virk.
This time they will be joined in the second half by Solihull-based novelist Abda Khan who released her critically-acclaimed debut, Stained, in October 2016 as a response to some of the rarely-confronted issues faced by women in British South Asian communities.
Abda will read excerpts from Stained and join the other writers in conversation with Paven Virk, as well as taking questions from the audience.
