The Deadline Has Passed

The deadline to submit the works to be published in the summer issue of Derafsh-e Mehr has passed. Please do not send anymore works.

We have received a lot of beautiful and impressing works from students. Some of our university professors (former and present) have participated in this issue too. We thank everybody who sent us their works.

We will review all of the works. Professor Martin will kindly take the trouble of editing the students’ works. Right after that we will begin the

process of designing and printing the journal. The second issue of Derafsh-e Mehr will be ready by the end of summer.

Please visit this page every once in a while to stay updated. We will publish interesting items on our Facebook page, group, and our WordPress weblog.

Wish you a happy summer! :D

Thank You!
