Rajia Hassib was born and raised in Alexandria, Egypt, before moving to the US at age twenty-three. A decade later, she returned to college to study English Writing and Literature and to pursue my life-long dream of becoming a writer. Hassib holds a BA and an MA in English, both from Marshall University. After graduation,she worked briefly as a part-time Instructor of English at Marshall University, teaching an Introduction to Creative Writing class as well as a class on Postcolonial Literature.
Founded by two-time U.S. Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz and legendary arts administrator Elizabeth Kray, Poets House serves as a home for all who read and write poetry. In 2009, Poets House moved into its permanent home at 10 River Terrace in Battery Park City on the banks of the Hudson River where, last year, 80,000 people walked through its doors, and more than five million were introduced to Poets House through its new website and national partnerships. 2017 marks the 30th Anniversary Celebration of this landmark institution.
