Roger Sedarat on Iranian-American writing
Roger Sedarat, an Iranian American poet, the author of Dear Regime: Letters to the Islamic Republic, which won Ohio University Press's Hollis Summers' Prize, and Ghazal Games his collection of poems , recently wrote an article on Iranian-American writing in The Best American Poetry. He mentioned some publications by Iranian American writers and genuinely suggested the readers to "add on in the comments section with other recommendations."
In addition to teaching creative writing (poetry and literary translation) in the MFA program at Queens College, City University of New York, Sedarat also teaches and writes on such academic interests as 19th and 20th century American literature as well as Middle Eastern-American literature.
