Project Description

Kaniz Hossain 

Program Facilitator, NYC

Kaniz is a Brooklyn born poet finding her footing in New York City’s creative community. As a brown woman coming from an immigrant and Muslim family, one of Kaniz/ biggest goals as an artist has been to cultivate spaces for voices that often feel unheard. Through her brand and business, House of Khaos, she encourages communities of creatives to find confidence in their craft, and to find kinship in each other.
In February 2022, Kaniz published a limited-edition chapbook, Plucking Petals of Poetry – a project that came into the world as a teaser to her full-length manuscript, Blooming Beyond the Boundaries, released in October 2022. When she’s taking a breath from her love of poetry, you can find her in bookstores with her friends, watering any one of her twelve plants, or enjoying morning walks throughout her favorite parts of the city.
