Hi friends!

I’m excited to have a poem in the new issue of Winter Tangerine! You can read it here.

I’m also thrilled to start a residency with Twelve Literary Arts soon, giving me the opportunity to work with artist Naazneen Diwan.

I hope everyone is keeping warm 🙂

New Interview

IMG_20180807_175406_606Hi friends!

It’s officially August which means summer is (almost) over, unfortunately. On the bright side, it’s been a productive summer. I have poems forthcoming in Tinderbox Poetry Journal and Winter Tangerine this Fall. I’ve successfully completed about 50 poems this summer through the help of a poem-a-day challenge I did with some friends! I’m ready for the second year of my MFA to start through the NEOMFA and I’m excited to share this interview I recently did with the Akron Beacon Journal. Here’s to a great start to a second year!

Check out some of my favorite reads from this summer:

  • Odes by Sharon Olds.
  • The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde
  • Some Say the Lark, Jennifer Chang
  • Hard Child, Natalie Shapero
  • Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, Ross Gay
  • Copia, Erika Meitner
  • Barbie Chang, Victoria Chang
  • Incorrect Merciful Impulses, Camille Rankine
  • The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton
  • Diving Makes the Water Deep, Zach Savich

See you soon,

~ Noor

Happy June!

Big THANK YOU to Josh Roark at Frontier Poetry for interviewing me about Diary of a Filthy Woman. You can check out the interview here.

So far, this summer has been super productive! I’ve been reading manuscript for The University of Akron Press and overusing our *HOLY SHIT* button! I’m feeling very lucky to be able to spend time with some beautiful work. Y’all have until June 15 to submit your manuscript!

Lately, I’ve been writing a poem-a-day and getting reading for Juniper Summer Writing Institute. I’m so excited for June 17 to arrive!
