Sharena is a poet from Bradford, West Yorkshire. She is the author of Testing Times and Broken Chains.
Sharena started writing poetry at a young age, which initially helped deal with her troubled childhood. Poetry later became a huge part of her life. She regularly performs at spoken words events, and in involved with community volunteering and work in schools. She has been interviewed by several radio stations, including BCB Radio, Drystone Radio and 5towns Radio, and she was filmed for National Poetry Day, in association with Bradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford Libraries. Most recently, she was a guest on Sisters Corner Iqra Sky TV.
I’ll be talking to Sharena about poetry, writing and her community work. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
