New York born Palestinian writer, Amjad Hajyassin writes stories about being both Arab and American. He began writing after his mother passed away in 2010. Though starting out as an amateur memoirist, he's began to delve into the world of fiction and prose poetry.
Completing his final semester of undergraduate at The City College, in history and English, he hopes to get accepted to an Master's of Fine Arts program in Fiction, somewhere in NYC.
