Prize-winning British Egyptian poet and playwright Sabrina Mahfouz explores poetry and the sex industry through her new collection How You Might Know Me. The collection is a poetic exploration of four women’s lives, connected through their experience in different areas of the UK’s growing sex industry. Written following years of creative writing workshops and Sabrina’s own experience of working in strip-clubs, the collection represents a broad range of backgrounds, ethnicities, ages and political convictions.
Examining taboos, surprising sexual encounters, the politics of desire, the vastly differing viewpoints on sex work and most prominently, the status of women’s equality in the UK today – How You Might Know Me is a fiery collection of poetry from one of the country’s most exciting new writers.
An introduction and opening spot comes from spoken-word sensation Hollie McNish.
Where Are We Now? will be a summer festival like no other: a gathering of time-served trouble-makers, spoken word rebels, artistic mavericks and leftfield music pioneers. We’ll be converging on the city of Hull to ask of today’s counter-culture the soaring, searching question with which David Bowie kissed us goodbye.
