Poet in Residence: Naush Sabah

Birmingham Literature Festival, which will run 6-9 October 2022, has appointed Naush Sabah as Poet in Residence.

Naush Sabah

Editor and founder of the ground-breaking poetry magazine, Poetry Birmingham Literary Journal, Naush Sabah is herself a fine and bold poet.

Naush will be attending events across the Birmingham Literature Festival, listening to the writing from the stage, but also absorbing the buzz of a festival that is all about sharing ideas.

As an overture to a number of events on our final day – Sunday 9th October 2022 – she’ll be sharing drafts of a series of short poems written in response to the festival’s many voices.

Our National Poetry Day events on Thursday 6 October are sponsored by Birmingham City University.
