The Arabian Stories team is delighted to announce that the renowned literary magazine Sukoon has published the English version of the winning story from the One Thousand Nights and Awakening literary contest.

Sukoon is an independent online literary journal that is Arab-themed and published in English. Sukoon presents previously unpublished poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, visual art, book reviews, interviews, and occasionally translations that have been created by established and emerging writers and artists from the Arab world, as well as writers and artists who are not of Arab descent but have an Arab story or piece of art to share. Sukoon is published twice a year.

The founder and editor of Sukoon magazine is Rewa Zeinati, a Beirut-based Lebanese-American writer and poet. Her poetry chapbook, Bullets & Orchids, was published by Corrupt Press (Paris, 2013), and her creative nonfiction book, Nietzsche’s Camel Must Die, was published by Xanadu (Beirut, 2013). Her poems, essays, translations, and articles can be found in various journals and anthologies in the US, the UK, and the Arab region. Zeinati is also a part-time writing instructor at Phoenicia University in Lebanon.
