Bazeed is a non-binary Egyptian immigrant based in Brooklyn, NY. They graduated with an MFA in Fiction from Hunter College in 2018. In addition to being an alliteration-leaning writer of prose, poetry, plays, and personal essays, Bazeed is a performance artist and singer. They are a current fellow at the Center for Fiction, and a past fellow of the Asian American Writers Workshop, the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics at NYU, and the Lambda Literary Foundation. Their work has been supported by residencies from Hedgebrook, the Marble House Project, and the Millay Colony. Peace Camp Org, Mariam’s first play, has been presented at La Mama Theater, NYC (2017), the Arcola Theatre, London (2018), and The Wild Project, NYC (2018). To procrastinate against facing the blank page, Bazeed runs a monthly world-music salon, and is a slow student of Arabic music.
