Iman Qureshi

Iman’s first full-length play, 'Speed', was produced by Kali Theatre and performed at the Tristan Bates Theatre in December 2013, and again in February 2014. Most recently her short play ‘His and Hers’ was commissioned as part of a New Muslim Voices scratch night by Tamasha Theatre. 

Iman spent two months working with a group of Year 7 – 11s at the Cardinal Newman Catholic School in Hove, under commission from Starboard Festival. Through a series of workshops Iman wrote a 30-minute play called ‘Home’ based on ideas developed by the group. The final play was performed by the students as part of the Starboard Festival. 

Her short story, 'Naz', was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and is published in the Love Across a Broken Map anthology. Iman is currently working on a short film, in collaboration with B3 Media. 

Shortlisted for the Allen Wright Award for Features and the Muslim Writers Award for Journalism, Iman has also written for the Independent, Guardian CIF, Time Out, Huffington Post UK, Liberal Conspiracy, DIVA Magazine, and the Journal of Postcolonial Writing, and has been asked to speak on BBC Radio networks.
