Short biography
The author
The author is a poet known by her pen name Nasra Al Adawi. An Omani poet whose work is
rooted in humanitarian and charitable concerns, she was born in Zanzibar and brought up in
the United Arab Emirates. As a budding poet, Nasra started writing verse initially in Arabic
and later in English. She entered her work in poetry competitions organised by correspondence
in the United States from 1994 to 1998. In 2001, one of her pieces was selected and featured
on a promotional T-shirt of the leading paints brand, Jotun Paints.
Thereafter, young Nasra began working on collections of her poems. Her first anthology,
entitled Collective Thoughts, was published in 2002, and the proceeds were donated to children
stricken by cancer at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital. Two years later, Nasra came out
with a second title Within Myself: The Willpower to Live Beyond Cancer, in collaboration with
the Oman National Association for Cancer Awareness. In 2005 Nasra collaborated with
young Omani photographer Yarub Al Bakry and held a charity exhibition in aid of the Oman
Charitable Organization where two artistic media -poetry and photography- mingled.

Nasra continues to explore new themes in her poetry and strongly believes that verse cannot
be presented only in the form of a book. Poetry is an art that can be merged with other artistic
media; it only needs a touch of originality and creativity, she says.
