Slay In Your Lane Presents…’Loud Black Girls’

The Slay In Your Lane girls are back!

And this time, they’ve curated a stunning collection of punchy, smart, and hard-hitting essays by 20 Black female writers in the UK asking ‘what on earth is next?’ – and the timing is pretty perfect.

I am thrilled to be one of these writers, having contributed an essay to this collection demanding that we seek radical change. I look forward to you being able to read my essay and others from Thursday 1st October 2020, when we are officially published.

In the meantime, you can pre-order our book here:
