She has been published widely online and in print, including in It’s Not About the Burqa (Picador), Nasty Women (404 Ink), Islands Are But Mountains (Platypus Press), and more. Her work has drawn acclaim: in 2018, she received a Scottish Book Trust New Writers’ Award, as well as being shortlisted for the Outspoken London Prize for Poetry in Film and the prestigious Edwin Morgan Poetry Award. In 2017, she was named as one of ’30 Inspiring Young Women Under 30’. Her debut poetry collection Let Me Tell You This was published by 404 Ink in March 2019 to great praise, and she was recently named by Scottish Makar Jackie Kay as one of her official selection of ten compelling BAME writers working in the UK, as part of the International Literature showcase.

Lisa Rigby has been writing and performing her own songs since 2004, both as a soloist and in bands Townhouse and Kilmarnock Edition.

To date, she has self-released three albums (one with Townhouse) and is currently working on her 4th; Lisa's 'head and heart' songs have enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio Scotland and awards from Scotland's Burnsong Project.

Lisa is also a mother, voluntary sector worker and survivor, and is honoured to be supporting Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre's vital work.

She is the project initiator and co-editor of ‘Real Women: Unheard Stories’, based on true stories of women supported by Shakti Women`s Aid. Anila writes in two languages including Urdu.
