Hafsah Aneela Bashir is one of ten writers selected to be part of New Writing North's 2020 Read Regional project. The Read Regional campaign aims to connect local authors from the north of England to local readers via promotions in libraries, bookshops and with festivals and venues. Each year Kendal Poetry Festival hosts one of the Read Regional writers, in association with Kendal Library, and we're really excited that this year we'll be welcoming Hafsah Aneela Bashir to the festival.
Hafsah Aneela Bashir is an award winning writer and performance poet who will be reading from her debut collection, The Celox and the Clot (Burning Eye Books, 2018) – described as ‘a startling, bold debut from a voice that needs to be heard in contemporary poetry’ (Helen Mort).
