Live Poetry: Hanan Issa

Jun 23
23. June 2021 17:30 - 19:00

We are delighted to announce that the award-winning poet Hanan Issa will come to FAU for a poetry reading.

The Welsh-Iraqi poet Hanan Issa has engaged in numerous collaborations and performances, amongst them BBC Wales and Seren Books. Her winning monologue “With Her Back Straight” was performed at Bush Theatre’s “Hijabi Monologues”. In her poetry, Hanan often reflects upon her heritage and her experiences as a woman of colour and weaves in questions of race, culture, history, and place.

We are looking forward to the performance and are excited to enter into discussion with the poet! If you want to join, please write an e-mail to to get access to the Zoom link.
