Our March Poets Corner will be devoted entirely to Afief Ismail Abdelrazig : a well known Sudanese poet who now lives in Western Australia, who has appeared at Poets Corner and is proudly included in our Pages '05 anthology.
Afief is in Egypt at the moment where he recently published his 4th book. I look forward to hearing some of his stories and poems both in his own language and translated/performed in English in Pages Cafe in March.
We will have the usual 'Open Mic' and in the light of our special guest, would challenge readers to consider sharing poems about 'Freedom' or 'Prison'.
An excellent feature celebrating Afief and his achievements, appeared in STORYLINE, the magazine sent to members of the Australian Writers Guild which is also available on-line. I recommend you read it: http://www.awg.com.au/artman/uploads/storyline_21_web.pdf
