The Complete Works

In 2008 Rowyda was selected for The Complete Works, a national two-year mentoring and development programme for ten advanced Black and Asian poets organised by Spread the Word.

The Complete Works culminated in an anthology launch and showcase event in September 2010.

The anthology, Ten, edited by Bernardine Evaristo and Daljit Nagra, was published by Bloodaxe Books in September 2010.

Rowyda’s mentor was Catherine Smith, author of The Butcher’s Hands and Lip.
