This month’s featured poet is: Amir Hasham

Amir Hasham, CFP member, and supporter of the CFP mission and methods.   

There is a consortium of poets that are critical to the success of the CFPChat area, an area which ensures that poetry is shared, vibrant, and creates a safe and friendly family environment, and Amir is a constant poster and supporter of this area, not to mention his poetry is passionate and well-crafted.

Amir was also published this year as part of the anthology "The Spirit of Humanity"

It is the grass roots poets such as Amir that help poetry organizations remain active both on the internet and in the public.

Amir is a lawyer practicing litigation in Vancouver, British Columbia since 1981, and has won a number of important cases in the fields of civil and criminal law. He is semi-retired now and devotes a lot more time to his writing.

He has been a steady contributor to Poets' Paradise since May 2006 and by now has posted 194 poems or comments with regard to posting of other poets.

Apart from poetry, Amir also writes short stories and, recently, one of his short stories won the First Prize in a Fiction Contest , organized by the North Shore Writers' Association. That story has now been published by NSWA in their 2006 Anthology.

Currently, Amir is working to get together a selection of his poems and will be looking to have those published.  

To get a feel for how Amir contributes to the CFP and to poetry, check out his work inside the CFP Forum.
