Promiti Islam

Promiti Islam (she/they) is a writer and educator based in New York City. The child of Bangladeshi immigrants, Promiti learned early on of the power of language for community mobilization and in amplifying narratives pushed into the margins. They seek to uplift the nuanced ways in which we experience the world through culture, diaspora, alienation, and a sense of belonging through their writing. Promiti has received fellowships and support from Kundiman and the VONA/Voices workshop.
