Iranian bloggers : Literature World Goes Blogging

There are more and more Iranian writers and poets who have become experienced bloggers. We discover more and more their creations on their blogs. Ofcourse in Persian. Moniro RavaniPour, a famous Iranian writer, is writing her first story on her blog. Abbas Marofi, Germany based writer, regularly writes short stories and poems in his own blog. It means weblogs are becoming a source of high quality literature and a place for their readers to discover new creations, leave their comments and know about their favourite writer daily life or reflection. In one of Marofi's poems we read:

“My love I will not lose you again. Even if street is crowded I will hold your hand and I will become peaceful”.

Yadola Royai, France based Iranian poet, is another one who writes time to time his poems on his blog. He was a pioneer poet before revolution and has inspired many others.

It is also fascinating that young wrtiters have opportunity to share their stories and poems with others on their blogs. One of them is Dastangoo which means storyteller in Persian. Dastangoo was born in 1981 in Iran and his/her mother didn't send Dastangoo to school because she didn't want State/public schools influence her child. Dastangoo learned writing & reading at home and start writing stories at the age of 12. Sometimes reality is more amazing than fiction!

Anyway professional writers and new comers in literature express themselves more and more on blogs. A chance to discover new talents and writings without censorship.
