ANNOUNCEMENT: Muslim American Video Cypher with WANPoetry, SlamFind, and More!

In the wake of rampant Islamophobia in the United States, now more than ever is the time to showcase the complexity of Muslim identities through narratives.

Short Line! is proud to announce that we are collaborating with Write About Now, SlamFind, and the Muslim Writers Collective to sponsor the Muslim American Video Cypher!

Funded by the American Muslim Storytellers Grant from the Islamic Scholarship Fund (ISF), the project’s goal is to film Muslims from all over the country to share their voices, going one after another reading and performing poetry and stories until the camera battery runs out.

The American Muslim Video Cypher is heading to New York City and will take place on Sat., Nov. 4 at 500 W 52nd from 5-8 p.m.
