about me

Kamelya Omayma Youssef is a poet-writer-teacher from Lebanon by way of Dearborn, Michigan. She tends to blur the borders between forms and hopes that one day borders are obliterated entirely. She is currently an MFA candidate in Poetry at New York University, where she is working on a few poetry manuscripts as well as a play. Her poems have been published in the Michigan Quarterly Review, Cordite Poetry Review, Mizna, Agape, Bird’s Thumb and on the theater stage with A Host of People. In addition to having earned a few writing awards and residencies, she also develops and presents creative workshops with her friends. Her ongoing project is mastering the art of being in multiple places at once.
