Zahra Dalilah is an activist and writer from South East London. She got into writing six years ago as a way to let her political rants loose on all things from corporate oil spills to intersectional feminism, Black Lives Matter to hope in hip-hop. From there she made her way into writing arts and culture, predominantly music and theatre, for platforms such as gal-dem, the Guardian and Media Diversified. Zahra’s first brush with creative writing was through a REWRITE taster class. Over the past year, she has begun to focus on her creative writing practice through poems and short stories. Having always been an avid theatre fan with a passion for sharp dialogue and stories which exist not just on the page move and breathe in live space, she is also currently exploring what her relationship to playwriting could look like.
