A fiction and poetry anthology in support of the Bare Lit Festival, showcasing award-winning British authors of color.

In 2016, a group of UK authors of colour founded the Bare Lit Festival: a literary and author festival featuring writers of colour. BARE LIT collects short stories and poetry by literary luminaries whose work represents the values and mission of the festival. Edited by Kavita Bhanot, editor of Too Asian, Not Asian Enough, Courttia Newland, author of The Gospel According to Cane, and Bare Lit Festival co-founder Mend Mariwany, all proceeds of this anthology go toward direct support of the Bare Lit Festival for authors of colour.
