27th October, Millennium Gallery: Danae Wellington, Silé Sibanda & Warda Yassin

Join us at Millennium Gallery in Sheffield on Friday 27th October at 6pm to celebrate the publication of Spit Out the Myth: Three Sheffield Poets.

In 2021 Désirée Reynolds curated Black Women Write Now for Off the Shelf with an event with Sheffield poets Sile Sibanda, Danae Wellington and Warda Yassin (then Sheffield Poet Laureate). Many people asked for poetry in print by all three poets and in response, Off the Shelf commissioned an anthology – Spit Out The Myth – with an introduction by Désirée.

At this launch, Silé, Warda and Danae (current Sheffield Poet Laureate) will read poems on migration and change, family roots, mythical tales and life in Sheffield. Désirée Reynolds will introduce the event and Suzannah Evans will talk about the publishing process.
