Najia was born in 1995 to an American mother and a Moroccan father, and fae continues to divide faer time between these two different families, lives, and worlds. Fae is currently studying English literature and linguistics at the University of Rochester in between faer stays in Casablanca, and all of these facets of faer life have subtle and perhaps nefarious influences on faer poetry.

Faer hobbies include reading into the small hours of the morning, wearing garish and ridiculous clothing, and claiming to be a demi-goddex and a physical manifestation of the Divine (which might be more convincing if fae weren’t generally known to be stark raving mad).

publications, including Creative Communication, Anthology of Poetry, Inc., Word Smiths, and even our own dear cahoodaloodaling. Fae is generally secretive and elusive, but folklore has it that you can invoke faer by whispering an ancient incantation over a handful of pixie dust during the blood moon. Or, you know, you could just head over to toxic-nebulae.deviantart.com. That works too.
