Fatbergs is my latest pamphlet, published by Knives, Forks and Spoons Press in April 2021.
Ruth Stacey writes:
"There is a visceral, unflinching eye at work in Fatbergs...which ranges far as it examines human relationships in the complex societies and landscapes they inhabit."
In 2019 I won the inaugural V20 Pamphlet Prize, and my pamphlet Air Show was published by Gloucestershire Poetry Society. I performed my winning poems at the Platform 2 event at the Gloucester Poetry Festival.
Airshow acknowledgements: Thank you to Fairacre Press for publishing Wrensong and Wagtail Swagger in Diversify (see below). Thanks to Nine Arches Press for publishing Parliament of Fowls in Under the Radar.
In 2017, my first collection containing poetry, short stories and urban legends was published by Silhouette Press.
The book brings together stories and experiences from living in Rwanda and those I've had since as a white woman married to a Rwandan man, raising our English/Rwandan daughter in the UK.
The Africa in my House is available from Amazon, book shops or Silhouette Press at http://silhouettepress.co.uk/shop/the-africa-in-my-house-by-andrea-mbarushimana/.
Check out my blog for reviews and an interview about the book.

I'm delighted to be published in this anthology of Short Stories from the Emma Press. My story is a Zombie horror - it's what the students I worked with wanted and it was loads of fun to write.
