About the event

Hear a selection of new poems on the themes of sisterhood and solidarity, hosted by Forward Prize-winning writer Mona Arshi.

This evening is curated by Rachel Long, poet and founder of Octavia, the poetry collective for women of colour.

Works, including poetry, dance and film, are performed live by members of Octavia and friends: Amaal Said, Safiya Kinshasa, Sarah Lasoye and Warda Yassin.

The works have been commissioned especially for Common Currency, English PEN’s year-long programme celebrating their centenary.
