Launching ‘In Focus: SUDAN’

Launching ‘In Focus: SUDAN’ May 2, 2022May 2, 2022 by mlynxqualey Edited by Leonie Rau and Nashwa Gowanlock This month, we’re launching the third section to focus on a different country or borderless region in the Maghreb or Mashreq, bringing together original poetry, fiction, and literary nonfiction by its writers; asking translators, authors, scholars, and readers to weigh in on their favorite works; and featuring pieces from our archives that reflect on the literary production of that country. Find the section at arablit.org/sudan. Authors and translators who would like to contribute to the section can reach us through our Submittable. Coming later this week, we have short stories by Fatima as-Sanoussi and Ibrahim Ishag, and poetry by Mughira Harbya. We launch this section with a discussion of the exciting new voices with Sudanese authors, an overview of Sudanese women’s writing, and a list of Sudanese literature available in English. * Start to explore: Women Recommend: Sudanese Women Writers Writers Select: New & Inventive Voices Sudanese Literature in English Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPrintLinkedInRedditTumblrWhatsAppPinterestTelegramPocketSkypeLike this:Like Loading… Our third focus is Sudan, with special thanks to contributors and translators Adil Babikir, Mansour El Souwaim, Ayman Bik, Lemya Shammat, Nassir al-Sayeid al-Nour, Ishraga Mustafa Hamid, Zeinab Belail, and Ann El Safi.
