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 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.
