8 - سمر عبد الجابر
نتحدث عن الكثير في هذه الحلقة. نبدأ بارتباك وننهي بارتطام. نتعرّف على سمر وتشاركنا تجربتها الشعرية التي لا تخلو من القصص والتفرعات. تحدّثنا عن حالة الخلق، التي هي بحد ذاتها حالة من التأمل الواعي والتركيز على التفاصيل، وعن الشفاء من الصدمات عن طريق الكتابة والتعبير. نتساءل عن حال الشاعر الذي تدفعه الظروف إلى العمل في مكتب بارد لا يليق بشغفه، فينعكس ذلك على شعره الذي يكتبه خلسة ما بين اجتمعات العمل، أو في الليل، كما فعل بوكوفسكي بعد العودة من مكتب البريد :عن سمر عبد الجابر فلسطينية مواليد عام 1985. حائزة على بكالوريوس في هندسة الكومبيوتر من جامعة بيروت العربيّة، 2008. صدرت مجموعتها الأولى "وفي رواية أخرى" عن دار ملامح للنشر بالتعاون مع دار "إكس أو" عام 2009، ومجموعتها الثانية "ماذا لو كنا أشباحا" عن "دار الأهلية" عام 2013، والتي حازت على الجائزة الأولى للكاتب الشاب من مؤسسة عبد المحسن القطان، وصدرت مجموعتها الثالثة بعنوان "كوكبٌ منسيّ" عن "دار الأهلية" عام 2015، بدعم من "صلات: روابط من خلال الفنون". كما أصدرت مجموعة شعرية مشتركة مع الشاعرة الأميركية نيكول كاليهان، بعنوان "بين قارتين – Translucence" ْالصادرة عن indolent books عام 2018. شاركت في "مهرجان شاعرات عربيات في دمشق" عام 2008، كما شاركت في "مهرجان الأدب العالمي في كوبنهاجن" الدولي للشعر عام 2012، ومهرجان "خان الفنون" في عمّان 2016 لديها مدوّنة إلكترونية بعنوان www.summer-blues.blogspot.com صفحتها على موقع جود ريدز https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5787139.Samar_Abdel_Jabe

7- Dorian Paul Rogers
Dorian Paul Rogers is a performance poet, Hip Hop artist, educator, and events curator. He is the founder of Rooftop Rhythms, a monthly open mic which has gone on to become one of the biggest events of its kind in the UAE and surrounding region. In this episode, we question the role of the mediator in relation to that of the artist. We talk about Dorian’s most recent poetry collection and adult coloring book, The Million Mile Stare, which gives voice to the childhood trauma he experienced growing up as a bi-racial child in the United States. As long time friends who have worked together many times before, Dorian and I (Farah Chamma) share personal experiences and reflect on how our poetry has changed and evolved over the years. We explore the many questions of vulnerability, self-doubt, and pain as well as how creativity and self-expression contribute to the process of healing. Dorian also tells us about THER.I.P.Y., the the Hip Hop group he co-founded along with his late rap partner, Kendall “Ken Jo” Johnson, may his soul rest in peace. His most recent solo EP, Burn B4 Listening, is a way to carry on his dear friend’s legacy.

6- Nidal Morra
Nidal Morra is a multidisciplinary writer and artist. In this episode, we will be exploring this multidisciplinarity, from making salt crystals, acting, and film directing to screenwriting and writing “something that might be poetry.” Is poetry a result of paying attention to the tiny details of our day to day? According to Nidal, it is “unbounded expression with conscious choice.” How is writing poetry a different process from screenwriting? And is self-discipline necessary in making any writer? Let’s find out. Happy Poetry Listening! P.S. We are on Patreon!

5- Wael Al Sayegh
Wael Al-Sayegh is an Emirati Poet and Martial Arts instructor born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is the author of three poetry collections: “A Poet’s Oud” (2006), “I Often Wonder” (2007), and “There is an Elephant in the Majlis” (2011). In this conversation, we discover Wael’s relationship to writing and to martial arts and how these two art forms came together in his life. We also talk about our mutual fears of writing in Arabic and in the Arab world, the refusal to be enslaved by jobs we hate, and about Al Areen Martial Arts, Wael’s Dubai-based martial arts academy. Wael’s Website: https://waelalsayegh.com Al Areen Martial Arts’ Website: https://alareenclub.com Here is one of my favorite lines from a poem which Wael reads to us during the episode: “I’d rather ride a donkey to work than a fancy car that makes me a mule to the bank.” Happy Poetry Listening!

Listen to this conversation as we learn how Farah is evolving her poetry into a new focus and listen to her as she uncovers her relationship with the colloquial (محكي) & literary (فصحة) Arabic language.
