Ruled by the Pen: A Collection of Poetry and Prose
This project was undertaken with Temple’s CARAS research grant for which I was
given the opportunity to travel to Amman, Jordan and interview writers to
understand female poetic resistance. It incorporates interview transcripts,
secondary research, and my own thoughts and research process woven together
into a culmination of poetry and prose to answer this question: How do writers,
particularly women in Amman, resist cultural, societal, and political oppression?
