Submission Saturday | Poem, “In the Name of God,” by Co-Founders Marwa and Dena


Co-Founders Marwa Adina and Dena Igusti performed this original piece in a Write About Now open mic event co-sponsored by Shortline! Review. The event was centered on a theme about Muslim Narratives. In this piece, Dena and Marwa artistically jab at  colonization/white supremacy blended behind Christianity/religion. These two poets use this angle to shine light at Islamophobia in an effort to reclaim their identities.
