A Woman is Laughing

Updated: Apr 27

The good folks at Hazel Press asked us to record a five-minute podcast for their blog, and we were so happy to have a chance to spotlight a translation from our issue of Modern Poetry in Translation. Because we all need some joy and sisterhood right now, co-director Helen Bowell reads Ankita Saxena's introduction to, and translation of, Fahmida Riaz's poem 'A Woman is Laughing'.


Listen here.
