Sharghzadeh (شرق‌زده ‘struck by the east,’ antonym of gharbzadeh) is a translator of Persian poetry. In 2018 he founded @persianpoetics, an online project dedicated to authentically translating Persian poetry into modern, poetic English.

After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2020 he founded the #rumiwasmuslim campaign to challenge fake quotes attributed to Moulana Rumi. He is now working on his first book.

You can support the project on a recurring basis via Patreon or with a one-time donation.
