M.F.A. Student and Creative Writing Fellow
Aliza Haskal (she/her) recently graduated with her B.A. in English and a University Poetry Prize from the Academy of American Poets. She has been published by Bullshit Lit, Zoetic Press, The Spectre Review, and The Lunar Journal. In the fall, she will begin her new journey at Syracuse University in the MFA Program for poetry!
Aliza is a poet hailing from Charlottesville, Virginia, from which she has recently absconded to New York. Her poems viscerally and bravely crystallize experiences of mental illness, young love, subsequent heartbreak, and odd things she witnesses on the train. She also experiments with erasure and other creative media such as dance, art, and the piano. She served as lead poetry editor of the Rappahannock Review last year and participated in the NYU Writers in New York Program. Aliza’s upcoming work will be found in Applause Journal.
