No Condition is Permanent

Simon Murray, Dorothea Smartt

19 Poets on Climate Justice & Change

Marked the 15th Anniversary of the execution of Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight Ogoni colleagues on the 10th November 1995, and served as a celebration of all who fight for climate justice and resource equity.

African Writers Abroad: All Change!

African Writers Abroad (PEN) presented new commissioned work along with a poetry workshop and creative writing workshop from poets Dorothea Smartt and Simon Murray (Sai MuRai) on climate change and justice.

Absolutely gutted that I missed this event!
