Calling All Poets & Storytellers!

Dear Friends,

I am writing this note to invite you to share your stories. You can choose a story that falls within any or all of these these themes: exileimmigrationnostalgia, and longing

I would love to receive your stories as a recording. I love listening to podcasts - so I thought it would be neat to hear your voices. If this option is not possible for you, you can send your story as a word document as well. Feel free to include other materials to support your story.

Please email your materials to:

elaheh@immigrantsandexile.org

By sending me your story, you are giving me permission to publish it on the Immigrants & Exile blog under your name or use it in a future podcast. You can choose to be anonymous. The point of this exercise is to open Immigrants & Exile to the public and inspire everyone to be open-minded in a time where hatred continues to seep deep. I believe that hatred stems from ignorance so why not educate the world and share love instead.

I look forward to hearing your stories.

P.S. If you need inspiration, here a is a short poem I recorded about my father and immigration.

With love & gratitude,
Elaheh
