4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE are a poetry collective and sisterhood made up of
Roshni Goyate, Sharan Hunjan, Sheena Patel and Sunnah Khan.
The collective was born on the waters of the Thames in 2017 where Sheena gathered friends on a boat to share in creativity and vulnerability. The four found resonance in each other’s voices and formed a WhatsApp group that became a safe place to share and receive each other’s writing.
Their first collection of poetry was published in 2018 by FEM Press and recommended by Forward Prize shortlisted poet Shivanee Ramlochan. They went on to open for T.S. Eliot prize winner Roger Robinson at the 2019 Stoke Newington Literary Festival and took a 5 star sell-out show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that same year where they also showcased other Black and Brown artists—upholding their principle of creating circles not pyramids in dismantling the exclusionary nature of artistic space.
They are a harbour and a sisterhood—each other’s biggest fans and fairest critics. This is their first collective offering of solo works.
4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE includes four individual pamphlets enclosed in a specially designed wrap.
