Sukoon is an (English) online literary magazine reflecting the diversity and richness of the Arab world.
Sukoon is an online literary magazine, the first of its kind in the Arab region, where accomplished and emerging poets and writers of short stories and personal essays publish their original work in English. Writers need not be Arab or of Arab origin, but all writing must reflect the diversity and richness of the cultures of the Arab world. Sukoon is an Arabic word meaning "stillness." By stillness we don't mean silence, but rather the opposite of silence. What we mean by Sukoon is the stillness within found only when the artist follows his/her inner calling to express and create; a calling that compels the artist to continue on his/her creative path for the sole reason that she/he doesn't know how not to. WE ARE NOW IN THE PROCESS OF COLLECTING SUBMISSIONS for our first issue out in Spring 2012!

We look for compelling, unique pieces that surprise and amuse.
