My poetry collective 4 BROWN GIRLS
WHO WRITE have experimented with long form for this limited
edition zine. It’s a collection of 4 essays by us, on the themes
of mothering, heritage and racist colonial amnesia. It would make a sweet
(belated) Christmas gift for the word-lovers in your life.

I teamed up with
Studio Sutherl& and Tony-nominated composer Alex Baranowski on 19th
November to stage a one-night only installation in Covent Garden called Twenty-five sculptures in five dimensions.
was an exploration of writing as sculpture. On 25 plinths of varying heights, small pieces of text – each made up of 30 syllables – communicated an original sculptural
object to the viewer.
Every element of the installation was based on the number five. Five type sizes, five different sized plinths of dimensions divisible by five. Five ingredients in the Monkey Shoulder sponsored whisky cocktails. Five syllables per line of text. Beginning at 5pm.
