Michelle Awad

Tennessee native turned New Orleanian, Michelle Awad is a contemporary poet who firmly believes in going where your heart no longer feels homesick. She has been writing and studying poetry for over 16 years and holds a degree in English Writing. In December 2021, she self-published her first full-length poetry collection, Soul Trash, Space Garbage, and she is currently working on her second collection, slated for Fall 2024. 

In her spare time, you can find Michelle sitting on her back porch in Algiers with a telescope and that idiot she's in love with, sipping a gin cocktail and listening to the sounds of the city. Her dog is probably there, too, protecting the yard from squirrels.
