Malika co-founded Malika’s Poetry Kitchen in 2001 to create a nourishing and
encouraging community of writers dedicated to the development of their writing
craft. Now a firmly established writers collective based in London it offers bi-weekly
writers surgeries and has supported writers including Inua Ellams, Warsan Shire and
Aoife Mannix with guest tutors including Kwame Dawes, Fred D’Aguiar and
Bernardine Evaristo. The organisation has inspired Malika’s Poetry Kitchen models
worldwide from Chicago to Delhi.
