Nadine Aisha Jassat is a poet, writer, and creative practitioner based in Scotland. Her poetry, essays and short stories have been published widely online and in print, including in Picador’s It’s Not About the Burqa and 404 Ink’s highly-praised Nasty Women. Her work has drawn acclaim: in 2018, she received a Scottish Book Trust New Writers’ Award, won the British Council’s UK Open Call for the Discover project, and was shortlisted for the Outspoken London Prize for Poetry in Film and the prestigious Edwin Morgan Poetry Award. Her debut poetry collection, Let Me Tell You This (404 Ink, 2019) was described by Scotland’s makar Jackie Kay as a ‘punchy, powerful debut’, with readers’ advised by Sabeena Akhtar: ‘if you read one poetry collection this year, let it be this.’
