IPPY Awards: Silver Medal for Best Anthologies Section

On June 4th, 2012 Afifa Yusufi, Sahar Muradi and I accepted the Silver Medal for Best Anthology Award at the BEA Convention in NYC. The award ceremony was a spin off event and we were in the company of brilliant and adventurous writers.

The award acknowledged ten years of work bringing this important anthology to the world. Sahar and I were blessed to be on this journey together and to meet so many talented Afghan American writers. Since the anthology’s publication we’ve met more writers and have considered a second anthology. For now, we have been busy coming together with writers and artists to continue the movement of Afghan American art and literature making. Thank you for acknowledging independent publishing. Thanks to everyone that came to see our trade show displays. Thank you to the University of Arkansas Press for the support these years.
