Sunday Submissions: LAAF 2021 Call for Proposals

The Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF) is currently inviting proposals for our 2021 festival, set to be held Friday July 16 – Sunday July 15, 2021.

Book Launches: ‘A Blade of Grass,’ ‘Louder than Hearts,’ ‘All the Battles’

A Blade of Grass -- a bilingual anthology that brings together new work by poets from "the Palestinian territories, from the diaspora, and from within the disputed borders of Israel" -- was partially funded by a research grant from the University of Chichester and partially by a successful crowdfunding campaign. Together, they enabled two donations of £240 to be made to the legal campaigns of Palestinian poets Ashraf Fayadh (jailed in Saudi Arabia) and Dareen Tatour (jailed in Israel).
