Author / Poet
Sanam Vefqi was born in 1988 in Iran. She has had a passion for imagination and words since her childhood. After various attempts in the fields of fiction, poetry, and novels in her teenage years, she began her literary career in her twenties. In addition to composing poetry, she has also translated poetry, and two books of her translations of Percy Bysshe Shelley's poetry into Farsi are ready to be published in Iran.
The natural and feminine elements are inseparable from her poetry, and the themes of her poems include topics such as existence, love, loss, anxiety, and the creation of poetry. She thinks poets and artists have no choice but to create, just like a pregnant woman who has no choice but to give birth to a child.
Artist / Illustrator
I was born in 1988 in Iran and currently live in Tehran.
I graduated in materials engineering and am fascinated by art and its impact on life.
My main artistic activity includes drawing and painting.
For years, I have been trying to reach what I have in mind,
sometimes I got close, and sometimes I got far away.

He moved to Canada over twenty five years ago and live now in a small rural village in eastern Ontario near the capital City of Ottawa, currently self employed, working as project manager and builder in the local construction industry.

Photographer, multimedia artist
Frances Bukovsky is a lens based artist and photographer who was born in rural Upstate NY and currently lives in Port Salerno, FL. She earned a BFA with Honors in Photography and Imaging from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2018.
Identity, family, place and memory are linked to the experience of chronic illness in Bukovsky's work where she pries apart daily routine and intimate spaces to explore her relationship to physical and mental health.
Thymournia (Ali Sheikhaleslami)
Thymournia - Ali Sheikhaleslami is an Iranian artist (35 years old). He earned a BA degree in Photography from the Ministry of Culture and Art in 2016. He has started his career as a photographer 22 years ago and as a writer 15 years ago.
His art, deeply personal and honest, is a reflection of his experiences and feelings, speaking of grief and death, sorrow and melancholy. To convey the very core of the feelings and the images that come across minds and hearts he is pairing the photographs with poems in order to enhance both and to give the viewer and reader the experience of visual thoughts. His words show, his photographs talk.
As an author, in creating Fall of the Raven, the artist shows the equality between words and photos, a story being the result of them together.
