“When I was a little girl, a spirit followed me to Las Vegas.
Running alongside the moving truck,
it’s legs twisting into wings, it howled,
‘Write damn you!'”

A doodling Iranian-American with a Surrealist outlook. She co-founded the Berlin Diaspora Society and teaches workshops for the Women Writing Berlin Lab.
