My personal essay, “Geography of Peaks and Dips and Lights,” which appeared online earlier this year in The Rumpus, will be reprinted in the upcoming anthology Voices on the Move: An Anthology by and about Refugees, available forpreorder now from Solis Press. This multi-genre anthology explores the nuances of displacement. About the book, novelistSamrat Upadhyay writes:
“Voices on the Move is a moving, must-read artistic exploration of migration and the trauma of displacement. Through diverse modes of expression—poetry, fiction, photography, play—the voices in this collection present the multitudinous ways with which we experience uprooting and belonging. The book is a jewel, a chronicle of our times, an intense awareness of humanity’s suffering and its yearning for home.”
My personal essay, “Geography of Peaks and Dips and Lights,” describes my return to Bosnia 18 years ago and appears today in The Rumpus. The piece was beautifully illustrated for The Rumpus by artist Susan Ito. This piece, I am excited to say, will also be reprinted later this year in the anthology Voices on the Move by Solis Press.
My new short story, “Family in the Foreign World,” appears online today in Epiphany’s Women Writing Women series. Many thanks to the wonderful writer and editor Rachel Lyon for the care she took with this piece!
