He is the New Zealand editor for 'Joussour', a literary magazine published in both English and Arabic. Basim is also a contributing writer to a number of Iraqi newspapers and magazines with world-wide distribution.

APIRANA TAYLOR is a Maori poet/writer/actor who, since the publication of his first book 'Eyes of the Ruru' in 1980, has proved to be a prolific writer not just of poetry but also short stories and plays. In addition, he is carving out a reputation as an actor. One of Taylor's best known poems is 'Sad Joke On A Marae', an earthquake of a poem in its depiction of cultural loss.
