An excerpt from Ashraf Fayadh

This is a poem from Ashraf Fayadh. Today, Ashraf is being held in solitary confinement, and has been sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia, for this poem. They believe his poem supports atheism and is misguiding. This was all based on ONE complaint from a conservative who heard Ashraf's poem.

We must cherish our natural right of free speech and creative right. This injustice is happening right now. There is a petition to urge the Saudi government to release him. Please sign and share: https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/Amnesty_international_Save_the_palestinian_poet_and_artist_Ashraf_Fayadh/?pv=1

Hear his words here.

We've got a few seats left for NEXT SATURDAY'S WORKSHOP: POETRY OF WITNESS with GAIL WRONSKY!

21 March, Saturday - 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
BEYOND BAROQUE MINI MASTER CLASS
with GAIL WRONSKY
THE POETRY OF WITNESS

Not all poetry is love poetry. Sometimes poets bear witness to historical and political events such as wars, or major political movements like the Civil Rights movement or the women's movement. In this class we'll be looking at some poems of witness, as these are called. Also we'll be talking about the relationship between politics and art. There will be brief exercises. Students will take away from the class a deeper understanding of and familiarity with this particular kind of poetry. Please bring poems, not necessarily witness poems, for workshop.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP LEADER:
Professor Wronsky, teaches poetry, poetry writing, and women’s literature, is the author of So Quick Bright Things (What Books Press, with Spanish translations by Alicia Partnoy); Blue Shadow Behind Everything Dazzling: Poems from India; and coauthor with Molly Bendall of Bling & Fringe: The L.A. Poems. Gail’s poems and essays have also appeared in many journals, including Volt, Pool, Runes, Denver Quarterly, Colorado Review, Antioch Review, Boston Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, Santa Monica Review, Laurel Review, Crazyhorse, Burnside Review, Lafovea, and Pistola. Her work has also appeared in anthologies, including Poets Against War (Nation Books), The Poet’s Child (Copper Canyon), A Chorus for Peace (University of Iowa Press) and Grand Passion: The Poetry of Los Angeles and Beyond. She has an MFA from the University of Virginia, a Ph.D. from the University of Utah, and is Director of Creative Writing and Syntext (Synthesizing Textualities). She lives in Topanga Canyon.
