Kayti Lahsaiezadeh 


As a child of two cultures, Kayti Lahsaiezadeh seeks to defy categorization both in her life and in her writing. As a writer of color, she believes in poetry as a form of resistance, prayer, and testimony. As a woman, her work explores a feminine that is unbridled and out for blood. She is a 2014 alum of the VONA/Voices Workshop, a poetry reader for Post Road magazine, and a current volunteer at Black Ocean Press, where she helps manage social media and outreach. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Post Road, Pea River Journal, Kweli, The Blueshift Journal, Witches Rise, FreezeRay Poetry, and Maudlin House. Born and raised in San Diego, she currently lives and works in Boston. More of her work can be found at k-lahsaiezadeh.com/
