Nora Selmani lives in England, but her roots are in Lipjan, Kosova. She is currently a second year English Literature and Creative Writing student at the University of Birmingham. Nora Selmani is the Women's Officer at her university, and enjoys writing poetry as its pliable form lends itself most easily to the subjects she enjoys writing about: Kosova, womanhood, and the city. Her greatest influences include Margaret Atwood, Ismail Kadare, Warsan Shire and e.e. cummings. When she's not writing, Nora can be found discussing women's rights, drinking kafe Turke, and reminscing the young Al Pacino.
