Jam is for Girls’ is Shagufta K’s fiercely honest debut collection. Her work lays witness to the immigrant experience and gives voice to the women who made journeys into unknown lands through the eyes of their daughters. This is not a collection that struggles between two conflicting cultures, but is an unashamed and unapologetic confirmation of the third generation identity carving itself a space in an increasingly Islamaphobic world.

She deftly balances passion and tenderness in her poems, exploring the personal and the political through gender inequality, racism and injustice that is present in the modern world. Leaving audiences with thought provoking poems that are rich and vivid in imagery.
