On Fiction & Translations
“When writing a short story, because it is short, I spend more time crafting and enjoying the language. Sometimes, It feels like I am about to grasp a poem rather than a short story… or could it be both? .” –Haifa Zangana, on writing short fictions.
“I am a committed writer or maybe I am an obsessed writer.” –Sahar Khalifeh.
