Nowhere Near A Damn Rainbow: Poeticians Anthology
My latest publication under xanadu*- a collection of 31 poets who have performed with "The Poeticians" - a poetry collective who meet and share their work in Beirut and Dubai, edited by Hind Shoufani."Here in the Middle East, we are alive. And we might not always be the people you think us to be. We are nowhere near a damn rainbow, but we know we will eventually get there. Consider this book a manifesto. A triumph of the human spirit. Go on now, I dare you to turn the page." - Official Ziggy quote
