We are beyond proud to be bringing you Asma Elbadawi’s long overdue debut poetry collection!
Belongings is, as it sounds, a collection of thoughts and feelings that depict the very heart of Asma’s life as a British Sudanese woman. A life that contains multiple influences, expectations and juxtapositions. Her poems are raw and unfiltered – Asma holds little back in her work, covering subjects personal to her such as migration, mental health, racism and sport.
These lines that started out as spoken pieces have finally made it to the page, to be read and savoured. Asma presents you with that which is hers. Her Belongings.
‘Asma’s strong sense of justice and honest exploration of difficult themes infuses a lot of her poetry.’ – Hanan Issa for MuslimGirl
“Whether on film or in the flesh, Asma Elbadawi has an undeniable, almost electrical presence – it’s no wonder that she’s shot to fame over the past year as an outstanding performance poet.” – Verbal Remedy
