We are glad to announce the publication of Winter-Spring issue of Derafsh-e Mehr. There are limited printed copies available for our readers in Iran, but others (as well as those Iranians who prefer the electronic version) can download the electronic version for free on our weblog. The digital version is not available right now, but it is going to be ready in one or two days. It will be placed on the weblog as soon as it is ready.
This is supposedly the last issue of Derafsh-e Mehr being published at the University of Mazandaran, because the current members of the editorial board are going to be graduated this semester (hopefully!). We are hopeful that other students will continue our way. But our works is not done yet; we will publish our future works on our weblog and our Facebook page. So, if you still like to read about Derafsh-e Mehr, don’t forget to visit us. You can also join our Facebook group if you like, you can share whatever you like regarding literature on our group (find the addresses on “About US” page).
Our 4th issue was first meant to be published in winter 2014, but due to some complications we could not meet the deadline, and we had to postpone the publication to spring. Then we tried to get the magazine out during the early days of spring, right after Nowruz vacations in Iran. Again we failed to make that, but we did not lose hope and finally we could prepare winter-spring 2014 issue by the final days of this educational semester. We are happy to announce that the 4th issue is going to be published on June 1st!
Bellow you can see the picture which is going to be published on the front cover. It is a picture of Forugh Farrokhzad, an Iranian poet. We didn’t have access to the original photo, so we were left with the the choice of scanning a washed out, smudged, and out of focus version of it in a book. We had a difficult time retouching it to make it presentable for the cover of the magazine. We are not professional graphic designers, but we did our best, and we hope that fans of Forugh Farrokhzad will like it. You can download it in high resolution by clicking on it. You are free to use it for non commercial purposes.
