literary works by tania hossain

My name is Tania Hossain.  I am a penman, poet, photographer and philanthropist. This is my literary blog.  I am humbled to share some of my writing and photography work with you and that you would take the time to read this blog. I have been writing since the early 1980s and have enjoyed a rich oral tradition of reciting and reading from my works.  Since 2010, I have been working on moving into the print and alternative media.  This blog is my effort to that end.

My poems are mostly written on social justice issues such as domestic abuse, warfare, gender equality, freedom of speech and the likes.  My plays pivots around social interactions and human dynamics such as one of defining friendship, coping with death by cancer, adoption struggles and on such matters.  My novels are erratic from what I consider to be an epic novel to a sold out thriller and pretty much everything in between.  Those works will take a life time to pull of the shelves and surrender them to some sort of a print format.  Welcome and thank you for reading scorpius odyssey ~ it’s all about the journey!
