July 26th, 2017: Mahsa Hosseini

mahsaMahsa Hosseini is a student of life. She is immensely curious and has a long-standing relationship with words and languages. She’s studied English lit, poetry, Persian and Arabic at UCLA and has an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College. She’s lived, studied and worked in Morocco and Iran. A consummate traveler, she’s taken a bus from New York to Santa Ana (It was rough and 3 days long) as-well-as a bus from Tehran to Istanbul (Not as rough and 2 days long). Her poetry examines relational dynamics whether it be between words or people. She is constantly thinking about how these dynamics form and inform our reality.
