assorted nasties and other love letters, a new project that afshan is working on involving short stories has been funded by The Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP) fund.

afshan will be spending time during the following year to develop her craft, attend workshops and work with a mentor on a new collection of short stories.

The fiction pieces will be inspired by the book of household poisons Assorted Nasties by David Harber 1993. afshan intends to write stories about queer, non-heteronormative relationships and the way love makes people do terrible things.
