Date: Sunday 3rd February
Venue: Slade Rooms
For centuries people have sat around fires on a cold winter’s night all over the world and shared stories by word of mouth. Where do your stories come from? Has this age old tradition inspired you to write?
Sampad invites you to take part in the first Chai and Chat event in Wolverhampton, to come and share your writing in an afternoon of relaxed conversation with women of all ages over a cup of tea.
Chai and Chat is a new series of informal discussion sessions where creative women come together and share their thoughts on writing, poetry and spoken word. Chai and Chat is part of Sakshi, a new strand of Sampad South Asian Arts and Heritage projects that focus on women and girls and encourage them to get their voices heard through creative projects in the arts.
This event will be hosted by Abda Khan. Abda is a lawyer turned writer. Her first novel Stained was published last year for which she was highly commended as a finalist in the NatWest Asian Women of Achievement Award 2017 in the Arts and Culture category. She is mother of five, mentor and a Lloyds Bank Women of the Future Ambassador 2018. To open discussions Abda will be reading from her second novel Razia.
