FATIMAH ASGHAR is an award-winning poet and performer who is almost always in-between two places. Her literary work hovers between prose and poetry, examining fact through a lyrical lens. She has won numerous awards for experimental risk-taking in her work, which has appeared in Muzzle Magazine, DecomP, Fringe Magazine, and many others. In 2011 she created Bosnia and Herzegovina’s first Spoken Word Poetry group, REFLEKS, while on a Fulbright studying theater in post-genocidal countries. Last year she was a Multicultural Fellow at the Steppenwolf Theater, where she worked in the Literary department. She is the co-founder of The Glass City Project, a Chicago-based arts organization that combines poetry, theory, and activism. She currently serves as the Artistic Associate for the Center for Civic Art and Design at Redmoon Theater.
