Simply a Writer

Monica Ali explores the challenges faced by writers of colour.

"If you're a writer of colour", writes Monica Ali, "you're only supposed to write about what people imagine to be your self".

"That self might be labelled as Asian writer, or Bangladeshi writer or BAME writer, but it is never labelled simply 'writer' - that would be the true privilege".

Producer: Adele Armstrong
