Samar Abulhassan

Samar Abulhassan holds an M.F.A. from Colorado State University and has worked in public school classrooms for 15 years, the last ten years for Seattle Arts & Lectures’ WITS program and the last five years for the Skagit River Poetry Project. Born to Lebanese immigrants and raised with multiple languages, she is a 2006 Hedgebrook alum and the author of six chapbooks, including Farah and Nocturnal Temple and what departs/which arrivals. She recently received a 2016 CityArtist grant to complete a novel-in-poems, reflecting on memory, longing and the Arabic alphabet.
