Biographical Note: Silva Zanoyan Merjanian

Silva Zanoyan Merjanian is a widely published poet who grew up in Beirut, Lebanon. She moved to Geneva during the Lebanese civil war after personally experiencing the devastation of her beloved country. She later settled in California to raise her two sons with her husband. Her poetry reflects a little of what she took with her from each city she lived in. The nostalgia for her roots, her Armenian heritage, her deep sense of humanity, reduced and elevated at the same time in life’s events permeate through her poems. Her work is featured in anthologies and international publications. Narrator /writer Eabha Rose recently read five of her poems; Choices, Rooftop, Doves of Beirut, Suicide and Home which gained international acclaim. Her first volume of poetry, Uncoil a Night, was released in 2013. And Cold River Press published her second volume RUMOR in March 2015. Proceeds from both books are donated to refugees.
