This special book comprises one chapter for every year from 2000 to 2020. Each chapter represents an aspect of the organisation’s literary activism work and support for those resisting human rights abuse. From Kosova, Ethiopia and Afghanistan through Zimbabwe, the Uyghurs, Iran, Kurdistan and the Western Sahara, plus many other areas, and culminating with a chapter on #BlackLivesMatter, here are the voices of writers in exile, championing their causes and resisting the attempt of powerful groups to suppress the truth. Exiled Writers Ink https://www.exiledwriters.co.uk/ was founded by Jennifer Langer in 2000 at a time when refugees were frequently stigmatised as disempowered, uneducated victims intent on exploiting the host society’s welfare and other systems. Its mission was to defy that narrative and disrupt existing stereotypes. With a passion for justice, it enabled refugee writers’ voices to be heard so that insights could be gained, not only into the pain suffered by refugees, but also into the complexity of the experiences of writers from diverse regions.

  • The Search is an exploration of the poet’s complex sense of identity as the daughter of German Jewish refugees who fled Nazi Germany for Britain. Crucially, her sensibility of otherness is dialogically engaged with contemporary refugees and the oppressed. Born of the history of loss and of refugee roots, the poet dreams of a lost world attempting to snatch at fragments and striving to create a narrative yet she is also compelled to confront current tensions arising from the diverse facets of her identity. Engaged in the attempt to resist negative representations projected onto herself, she struggles to define herself.
