Creative writing workshops at the Women's Library, in Partnership with the Storying Relationships project, have included playwriting, fiction and blog-writing workshops for young Muslims aged 16-30 years old. We will be celebrating all the hard work and dedication our participants have shown to the workshops by showcasing a fantastic array of literary work in both performance and written word. We will be hosting a premier of written word from the participants and showcasing a performance with Edinburgh theatre company Stellar Quines who will be acting out the plays written by young British Muslim women.

The celebration event will also be inviting guest speakers who include Sufiya Ahmed author of Secrets of the Henna GirlSafina Mazhar author of The Power of Four seriesWriter and playwright Sara Shaarawi and talks from the University of Sheffield's Storying Relationships team.
