Spit Out the Myth: Three Sheffield Poets

Danae Wellington, Silé Sibanda, Warda Yassin

Friday 27 October 2023, 18:00 at Millennium Gallery


In 2021 Désirée Reynolds curated  Black Women Write Now for Off the Shelf with an event with Sheffield poets Sile Sibanda, Danae Wellington and Warda Yassin (then Sheffield Poet Laureate).  Many people asked for poetry in print by all three poets and in response, Off the Shelf commissioned an anthology – Spit Out The Myth with an introduction by Désirée.  At this launch, Silé, Warda and Danae (current Sheffield Poet Laureate) will read poems on migration and change, family roots, mythical tales and life in Sheffield.  Désirée Reynolds will introduce the event and Suzannah Evans will talk about the publishing process.

In association with The Poetry Business

Books will be on sale at the event. Books can be ordered online from La Biblioteka – Off the Shelf 2023 book store
