I love Aziz's writing. He creates wonderful blends of the folktales and story-telling traditions of his native Sudan with a wry sense of humour and a passion for justice. Read two new short stories by Aziz here...
We are myself, Sherwan, and three other writers whom you will meet shortly!
About Lots Of Big Ideas
The Lots of Big Ideas (LOBI) blog aims to counter media distortions of asylum issues. Our wiki is a space where asylum-seekers and refugees - people who don't usually have a voice - can make their stories heard.
These are stories about what it's really like to be an asylum-seeker; stories about why people end up leaving their home and loved ones to seek asylum in a strange and often unwelcoming place. Many of our contributors are members of the Write to Life group at the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture;
but we want to encourage anyone to add their voice here.
