I’ll be reading extracts from my stories and taking part in discussions on the 11th of February with Literary Natives who celebrate writers of colour. Tickets can be purchased here!
It’s here! It’s alive! My short story collection The Story of Us is now available in English *and* Somali!!!! You can buy it here.
Merry Christmas to those of you who are celebrating today. The interview that I did with BBC World Service Radio is now up on the BBC website!
This happened yesterday! Will post the link as soon as I get it!
Just recorded an hour of banter and interesting discussions with Baar Hersi for her Youtube Channel. It will be up early next year!
My short story Bloated is once again long listed in another competition! This time it was for the Short Story Day Africa Prize for Short Fiction. Unfortunately I’ve had to withdraw myself from the competition as this story has already won third place in the 2017 HISSAC Awards.
Last night’s panel was very interesting with some heated debates on topics of race and identity. A Periscope video of the introduction can be found here.
I’m on another panel tonight at King’s College, London. Look forward to what promises to be a very thought-provoking and fruitful discussion.
Do join us!
