Kamand Kojouri was born in Tehran, raised in Dubai and Toronto, and resides in Wales. She completed a Creative Writing MA in London and currently teaches creative writing seminars as a doctoral candidate at Swansea University.
Her first book, The Eternal Dance, is a collection of love poems published in March 2018. All of the royalties are donated to The Trevor Project, an organisation that provides suicide prevention and crisis intervention services to LGBTQ youth.
God, Does Humanity Exist? is her newest poetry collection and deals with themes of suffering, resistance, and empowerment. The poems are rooted in dark realities to raise awareness about the many crises we are facing, but ultimately the message is one of hope and togetherness. All of the royalties are donated to children living in poverty in Iran.
With every book sold (paperback or eBook), Kamand donates to have a tree planted in Sub-Saharan Africa to help provide families with food, income, and a sustainable way of life.
