Farrah Sarafa is an award-winning American poet.[1][2] Professor, editor and translator based in Manhattan, she was born to a Palestinian Muslim mother and an Iraqi Christian father.[3] Graduating from the University of Michigan and Columbia University by Edward Said, she teaches, translates and writes[4][5][6][7]

Having published for Blackbook, Village Voice, Foliate Oak, 'Tablets, Diagram, Arabesques [8] and the Litchfield Review, she is a freelance journalist and correspondent for Green Save, The Struggle, Scallywag&Vagabond, Chaldean News, among others.[9][10][11][12][13] She teaches humanities at various Manhattan colleges.[14]

She says that literature enables one to explore culture, peace and injustice, just as poetry allows her to access the intimates of her Palestinian-Iraqi homelands.[15]
