Anba Jawi

Born in Baghdad, Anba studied Geology at the University of Baghdad – one of a generation of pioneering women geologists in Iraq. She gained her PhD from UCL London. She worked in the refugee sector for more than 20 years and was honoured with an MBE on the Queen’s birthday list in 2004 for her services. She writes and publishes in Arabic and English. A chapter from her novel The Silver Engraver was included in the TLC Free Reads Anthology (2019) and two chapters were produced in a chapbook published by Exiled Writers Ink (2021).

In January 2022, Palewell Press launches The Utopians of Tahrir Square an anthology of protest and witness poetry from Iraq jointly translated and edited by Dr. Anba Jawi and Catherine Davidson. Anba, Catherine and Camilla are collaborating on further books.
