IWP Alumni Voices: Bina Shah (2014)


Bina Shah, a Karachi-based novelist and alumna of the International Writing Program (IWP) at the University of Iowa, shares her thoughts about the power of literature to transcend borders. "To have 10 weeks to travel to another culture... and be with 30 plus other writers from all over the world, gave me such a sense of fellowship," Shah says. "It made me again believe in what I do as a writer." Today Shah is a contributing writer for the International New York Times. Her new novel, "A Season For Martyrs," will be published in November 2014 by Delphinium Books.
