Tehran, 9 October 2005 (CHN) - The Biggest gathering of Armenian authors will be held in Yerevan from 8 to 12 October with the presence of 2 Iranian literary figures; Zoya Pirzad and Ahmad Nouri Zadeh.

The gathering is dedicated to the writers and poets who write their works in languages other than Armenian.

Among the invited literary figures for the event, Zoya Pirzad, an Iranian awarded female writer, is mentionable. Zoya Pirzad whose famous "I am the one who turns off the lights" has won several national literary awards, is one of the few Armenian writers in Iran who writes in Persian.

"Since Leon Analian became responsible for the directorship of Armenian Writers Association, the association is more active. Organizing several literary conferences are among its achievements" said Varand, secretary general of the association.

This 2nd edition of the conference of Armenian writers is dedicated to the review and study of Armenian writers who live outside the country. These kinds of literary events are aimed at creating greater kinship among Armenian literary figures from all over the world.

Beside Zoya Pirzad, Ahmad Nouri Zadeh is another Iranian literary figure who will be present at the event. He will be awarded for his great translations of Armenian works into Persian.
