Author Maha Zimmo

Maha Zimmo is a Canadian Muslim feminist born in Libya, and of Palestinian roots. In her poems, the titles are the last thing you come upon. In this way, the poet pulls the reader into the disjunction and confusion first and second generation immigrants experience as they forge personal and cultural identities, often forcing the reader to take a second look at the poem, so that they might receive and understand the work in a different light, as many must do when facing Other.

She holds a Master of Arts in International Legal Theory; is a former political analyst for several online journals including rabble, has been writing for 14+ years at onefemalecanuck(dot)com, and is currently the resident advice columnist at Chai Latte Diaries, as well as a regular contributor at sister-hood magazine. Her poetry has been featured in ARC Poetry Magazine, Cosmonauts Avenue, METATRON Press, Across the Margin, Ottawater Poetry Journal, Taj Mahal Review, and Rise Up Review.

“I felt all my senses come alive as I was reading through her words. It is an incredible sensation. Equally, her poetry rings with a clarity and an innocence that I have seldom seen in this age of so much pretension. Reading Maha´s poetry is a beautiful, even if sometimes heart-wrenching, voyage. Take it.”
Kenza Saadi for Sister-hood Magazine
