Today in our last video for installment four of the PCRS, Hedieh Mehdi Zadeh Kashani reading her poem “Language Barrier” from untethered vol. 3.2.
Hedieh Mehdi Zadeh Kashani is from Tehran, Iran. She moved to Toronto to do a Master’s degree in English literature and diaspora studies. She is currently in her second year of law school and feels there might be a certain kind of poetic justice in that. You can read more of her work in Looseleaf Magazine, the Harthouse Review, and Echolocation.
If you missed this gorgeous issue, you can still grab a copy here.
