What happens when war disrupts the creative minds of writers?

In this episode, I conversed with Franco-Moroccan-American writer and editor, Jordan Elgrably where we delved into the intersection of literature and conflict. Here are some of the highlights of our conversation:

  • Middle Eastern writers' anthology: We explore Jordan's latest anthology, Stories from the Center of the World, which showcases the diverse voices of Middle Eastern writers navigating the complexities of the current geopolitical landscape. 
  • Arab American Authors in Focus: We highlight the remarkable journey of Omar El-Akkad and other Arab American authors, examining how trauma and Resilience shape their narratives.
  • The Editorial Eye: Jordan shares insider tips for aspiring writers, revealing what it takes to make literary submissions stand out in an evolving publishing landscape that's increasingly embracing diverse voices.

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation that celebrates the Resilience of creativity in the face of adversity, and the promise of more stories to come.
