The season finale of Oyez Roslyn! will feature two poets: SARAH GALVIN and MAGED ZAHER.Seattle-based poet (and software ace) Maged Zaher originally from Cairo described as the “writer simultaneously the furthest inside and the most outside the English language.” Some of his own poetry is collected in Portrait of the Poet As an Engineer and also translates contemporary Egyptian poetry.”the neon of the same city carried me -like a lame prophet – to its outstanding coffee shopsyes mine is a standard story of time spent the worst way…” Sarah Galvin is a live wire of a different sort. Her poetry can be found in a variety of literary journals including Hoarse Pageboy Dark Sky on a greater variety of paper napkins and all over the faces and torsos of people passed out at parties though she sort of hopes they’ve washed it off by now. She is The Stranger’s Chow Bio columnist and gets to meet people who make interesting food like fried crickets and eggs baked in saffron tomato sauce. Oyez Roslyn!: a convergence zone of creative expression from both sides of the Cascades.
