Color is a language in itself

The poet is the one that seems to stand at the sidelines when there is talk about literature. Every time I discover a collection of poetry I am happy to pass the news on to a wider audience.

This time it is about the poet Mahtem Shiferraw, a lady with Ethiopian and Eritrean roots. Her first steps on the paper of poetry were in Italian.

She has published her debut, a collection of poems, titles Fuchsia. A colourful and flowerrful collection.

She was interviewed by The Rumpus and here you will find this interview.
