Poetry Talk: Writing after flight - Words in one’s luggage
Rasha Abbas (c) Heike Steinweg
Rasha Abbas SYR/GER writer, journalist, Jalal al-Ahmadi YEM/GER poet, Ghayath Almadhoun PSE/SYR/SWE poet and Raed Wahesh SYR/GER poet, in conversation with Leila Chammaa GER translator.
How does one carry on writing after taking flight? How does one live between languages? Where can one publish, and can one gain a foothold in a new literary space? Four writers who have found refuge in Europe, from Jalal al-Ahmadi, who only recently arrived in Germany, to Ghayath Almadhoun, who is now a Swedish citizen, will be discussing these questions and talking about their experiences.
