Poetry is everywhere, you just need to find it! Refashion, reorder, and reframe ordinary texts including books, magazines, and other pieces of literature into creative poems using found poetry techniques with local poet Hanan Hazime.

Hanan Hazime is a poet, a story teller, and an avid scripturient. She has a Master of Arts degree in English Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Windsor. Hanan’s poetry and prose have appeared in a number of publications, including The Windsor Review, and Generation magazine. Currently, she is in the process of revising her novel Rosewater which challenges stereotypes about Muslim women, and working on Hymens & Hijabs, a collection of short stories and poems that explores Muslim female sexuality. She is also working with her husband, Shae Stamp, on Chiaroscuro, a collection of poetry, which aims to dispel myths surrounding mental illness in both Eastern and Western cultures. When not writing, Hanan enjoys overanalyzing things, photo-blogging, dancing with faeries in the woods, and drinking copious amounts of tea.
