How did we find the young poets?

While travelling through Afghanistan, The Poetry Project Co-Founder and SPIEGEL Foreign Correspondent Susanne Koelbl was able to experience the meaning and the magic of poetry in Persian culture first hand. All youth from Persian-speaking countries were invited to participate in the Poetry Workshop, regardless of their educational background. Among them were Ali Ahmade (15), Ghani Ataei (17), Kahel Kaschmiri (16), Mehdi Hashemi (16), Mohamad Mashghdost (19), Samiullah Rassouli (17), Shahzamir Hataki (16) und Yasser Niksada (14).
