An award-winning artist and poet, Shagufta is described by gal-dem as a poet whose work ‘leaves you validated but aching – her narratives are important, heart-wrenching and relatable.’

Her poetry collection ‘Jam Is For Girls, Girls Get Jam’ pblished with Burning Eye Books, has been recommended by Nikesh Shukla (editor of the 2016 best-selling ‘The Good Immigrant’) as ‘a social political masterclass in its exploration of cities, cultures, race, food and family’. 

She is the founder of The Yoniverse,a poetry collective that amplifies the voice of South Asian female spoken word poets.
