A Celebration of Muslim Women’s Writing at Glasgow Women’s Library

On 29 September Glasgow Women’s Library hosted a lively and inspiring afternoon of spoken word and performance by emerging Muslim women writers exploring the theme of relationships. The event was led by Sheffield University Storying Relationships Project and it comprised of a series of lively conversations with acclaimed Muslim women writers including Safina Mazhar, Sara Shaarawi and Sufiya Ahmed followed by readings of their scripts.

Stellar Quines were pleased to support this event and Catherine, our Creative Learning Associate, helped with dramaturgy on the scripts before the event and was part of the team on the day. Read more
