Mohsen Mohamed

Mohsen Mohamed is an Egyptian poet born in 1994. His poetry collection entitled, Mafeesh Raqam Birod (No One is on the Line), was published in 2020 by Dar El Meraya for Cultural Production. It won first prize for vernacular poetry at the Cairo international Book Fair as well as the Sawiris Cultural Award.

His life as a poet began during the five years he spent in prisons.
