As-salamu alaykum

Well, here it is… Finally, I have a website! And this is my first blog post! I will post upcoming events and happenings here from time to time.

In terms of what I’m up to soon, I’m excited to be doing several events at Off the Shelf Festival of Words. I can’t believe I’ll be reading with Simon Armitage later this eve! And tomorrow on 12th, I’m thrilled to be in conversation with Sheffield ex-lord mayor Magid Magid and Sheffield’s currently Poet Laureate Otis Mensah.

And really amazingly… that’s when I will be handed the role from Otis Mensah of… Poet Laureate of Sheffield for the next two years inshallah! I can’t wait for all this might bring and look forward to updating via this site.

More soon. Meanwhile, thanks for visiting my site 🙂 For more about my Off the Shelf events, visit Hive
