Payam Feili

Payam Feili was born in 1985 in Kermanshah, a city in western Iran which was a war front during the eight-year Iran-Iraq war. He began writing poetry when he was in his early teens. His first book, The Sun’s Platform, was published when he was nineteen. The book was subject to heavy censorship by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and his works have since then been banned from publication.

In 2006 Payam’s first novel, Tower and Pond, and a short-story collection titled Crimson Emptiness and Talking Waters were published in Persian by e-publisher Lulu in the United States. I Will Grow, I Will Bear Fruit . . . Figs was published by Gardoon Publishers in Germany. His other works include the novel Son of the Cloudy Years and a collection of poems titled Hasanak, both published outside Iran.
