Najwan Darwish is a leading voice in contemporary Arabic literature, working as a poet, journalist, editor and critic. The New York Review of Books has described him as “one of the foremost Arabic-language poets of his generation”.
Hailing from Mauritius, the small island nation off the Southeast coast of Africa that bares the linguistic legacies of both Dutch and French colonisation, Umar Timol writes poetry in a French creole that is thick with neologisms.
Our upcoming workshop translating Arabic poet Amjad Nasser with Atef Alshaer is now fully booked. We are starting a waiting list so if you are still interested in coming to this session please get in touch.
