Atiya Hussain

Atiya Hussain, a mother of four, was born and grew up in beautiful and colourful India, and has called Ottawa her home for the past 28 years. Although she has been writing for many years, this is Atiya’s first time submitting her pieces. She looks for the small moments in life that make up the ‘big picture’. Each moment is like the click of a camera - it captures a moment and freezes it in time. But each of those moments has a narrative before and after it. Her ‘poems’ are about those moments, and exploring the narratives surrounding them.
