Fortesa Latifi lives in Tucson, Arizona, but her roots are in Drenica, Kosova. She has a Bachelor of Science in Family Studies and Human Development, with a concentration in Health Psychology from the University of Arizona. Her first book of poetry, "This Is How We Find Each Other" was published in December 2014 through Where Are You Press. She has wanted to be a writer since she was old enough to hold a pencil and is still in awe that her childhood dreams have all unfolded before her. Fortesa draws all of her inspiration from her personal experiences- reading her poetry is like catching a glimpse of her diary, but she doesn't mind. Her favorite topics to explore are losing love and finding it, feminism, and her family and country's history. She hopes to write the kind of novel that you will dog-ear and pass onto your daughter. Fortesa loves converting people to feminism, reading the same books over and over, and drinking coffee in cafes across the world.
