In Conversation with Shagufta K


Welcome to the Words of Colour In Conversation Podcast!

Hosted by Heather Marks, this podcast is a platform for creatives of colour to discuss their work, practice and much more.

In this episode, Heather speaks to Shagufta K, award-winning poet and filmmaker. She’s the author of Jam is For Girls, Girls Get Jam, producer of short film Borders, founder of Yoni-Verse, a South Asian women’s poetry collective, and the co-founder of Kiota, a new collective for performers of colour in Bristol.
