After talking with another site contributor, in July I invited the iranian.com community to join us in writing about their reflections on Iran after the June uprising. I had no idea people would respond so overwhelmingly to the call. I am filled with pride about our community of loving and thinking people who wrote a total of 29 blogs (from 25 contributors) in response to this call. The pieces which were both in Farsi and in English were some of the most thought provoking pieces of poetry, prose, music, and art. Thank you all for your thoughtful and heartfelt contributions. You can see a list of the series below, as well as in my original blog. Thank you!
I would like to invite you all to indulge me in another invitation. As Iran goes through a tumultuous time with expected and unexpected news of courage and devotion, ignorance and hate, these days most of us are preoccupied with conflicting thoughts, fears and hopes about Iran's future. What are your hopes for Iran? What would you like to see happen there? What is your ultimate idea of what a good and happy Iran is? Do you have any ideas on how to reach those goals? I would like to invite you all to write about those thoughts and contribute to a new collection of work by iranian.com contributors.
Let me remind you again that this is not a writing contest, just a forum for expression in a loose format. You can write in English or Farsi, poetry or prose, art or music, just as you did the last time. The simple rules are as follow:
At the top of your blogs, please put in the following phrase: "For the Iran, a hope series."
Thank you in advance for considering this invitation and for your participation.
