'Aleppo Diary' by Fouad Mohammad Fouad translated by Samuel Wilder and The Poetry Translation Workshop
'Aleppo Diary' by Fouad Mohammad Fouad, a Syrian doctor, public health researcher, and poet. He was born in Aleppo in 1961.
In 1980, Fouad was one of a group of younger Syrian writers to participate in the formation of the Aleppo University Conference, a group that made a novel contribution to modern poetry in Syria and the Arab region.
The circumstances of the war in Syria have forced him to leave Aleppo for Lebanon, where he currently works as visiting professor in the College of Health Sciences at the American University in Beirut.
