Mohamad Kebbewar is an Aleppo-born Syrian Canadian poet, fiction writer and designer. His poems and short stories have been featured in various literary publications across the country, and he has presented his work at many gatherings in Metro Vancouver and Calgary. At this time, he is putting together the first collection of his poetry.
Mohamad immigrated to Canada when he was 19, settling in Montreal where he earned a B.A. in History at Concordia University. He says: ‘My poetry deals mostly with the Syrian conflict and my frustration at the silence of the international community.’
At the February 24 gathering of Surrey Muse, Mohamad will present some of his new poems to begin the Open Mic session. More about the event is here:
