F Mehrban Poetry

Two poems from F Mehrban are now up on YouTube, read by Richard Trinder.

F Mehrban is a former political prisoner from Iran who now lives in London. I have been working with her through the Write to Life programme run by the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture.

Remember Me and Leila were written in memory of the author's brother, Feridoon, who died after eight years in Evin prison.
