Noor Ibn Najam

unhappy isn’t the word at all


but what do i know?

Noor Ibn Najam is a poet who teases, challenges, breaks, and creates language. She’s a Callaloo and Watering Hole fellow and a recent resident of the Vermont Studio Center. Her poems have been published and anthologized with the Academy of American Poets, the Rumpus, Bettering American Poetry, Best New Poets, and others. Noor’s chapbook, Praise to Lesser Gods of Love, was published by Glass poetry press and mulls over the ever-shifting role love in the human experience—and how best to worship such a multitudinous deity.
