The editor, Andy Young, writes in about
a new bilingual Arabic/English literary magazine called Meena. We are based in New Orleans and in Alexandria, Egypt, attempting to open a “port-of-entry” between the two cultures. Our first issue was printed at the same time as Hurricane Katrina nearly destroyed our city (we, the editors, live in New Orleans). But we are managing to get that one out into the world even as we work on shoring up our new issue, the theme of which is water and the city (this chosen before the event!)
