Olfa Philo Drid

Olfa Philo Drid is an engagé writer and poetess from Tunisia and holds a PhD in American Literature. Her cause as a poet is to voice the buried emotions and phobias of the oppressed and downtrodden, as well as to unmask and expose hidden truths socially considered taboo or shameful. Her poems have appeared in many international anthologies of poetry and in different online and print literary journals in USA, UK, Canada, India, China, Philippines, Albania, Uzbekistan, Serbia, Belgium, Iraq, Nepal and Italy. Some of her poems have been translated into Arabic, Serbian, Chinese, Albanian, Spanish, Romanian, Assamese, Bengali and Nepali. Thus far, Olfa has published a play entitled Sublime Revenge, a collection of poetry entitled (Un)jailed and another collection entitled Beyond the (sur)face. Some of her poems attracted the Tunisian painter Nebiha Felah who resolved to exchange the pen and paper with the brush and palette and translate the poems into paintings which were displayed in an art exhibition entitled « The Shadow of a Dream ». Some other poems were translated into Italian then turned into songs performed by Fabio Martoglio.
