Ambata Kazi-Nance is a writer and editor born and raised in New Orleans, LA, and currently resides in the California Bay Area with her family.

Her writing has appeared in Sapelo Square, midnight & indigo, CRAFT, Peauxdunque Review, Cordella, Ellipsis, Mixed Company, and Love Insh’Allah. Links to all of her writing can be found here.

She is writing a novel about three young Black Muslims navigating faith, tradition, and the impact of their personal decisions in post-Katrina New Orleans.

When she’s not writing, she can be found checking out more books than she can carry from her local library, imagining herself a flaneuse, fumbling through motherhood, and daydreaming, always daydreaming.
