Young people from four cities (London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham) took part in creative writing workshops that developed their campaigning and creative writing skills as they experimented with the power and depth that words can have to spread a message.

The poems capture the nuances and complexities of the practice of FGM and the varying emotions and feelings that the practice evokes inviting the readers to engage in a wider discussion about the links, rationale, and complications of a practice that can at times be oversimplified in wider public debate and commentary.
