Bänoo Zan

Writer, translator, teacher, and poetry organizer, Bänoo Zan, landed in Canada in 2010. She has been writing poetry since the age of ten and has published more than 80 poems, translations, biographies, and articles in print and online publications around the globe. Her book, The Song of Phoenix: Life and Works of Sylvia Plath, was reprinted in Iran in 2010. Her poetry collection, Songs of Exile, will be published with Guernica Editions in 2016. Another book of poems in English will be printed in 2015. Both books were solicited by Canadian publishers in Toronto. She hosts Shab-e She’r (Poetry Night), the most diverse poetry reading series in Toronto. The series tries to bridge the gap between diverse poetry communities in Toronto, and to bring together people from different ethnicities, nationalities, religions (or lack thereof), ages, poetic styles, voices and visions.
