We’re delighted to announce that Afshan D’souza-Lodhi’s debut collection [re:desire] has been longlisted for the Jhalak Prize 2020!

The Jhalak Prize was started in 2016 to celebrate BAME writers across the UK, through various types and genres of writing. Find out more about the prize and the other books longlisted here.

Afshan D’souza-Lodhi joins poetry bestsellers Rachel Long and Caleb Femi on the Jhalak longlist and her book [re:desire] is ‘an evocative collection of painful and beautiful multilingual poems in which silences are broken, sexuality is uncertain, and love is a bloody mess.’ (Dean Atta)
