Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Zakiya Kassam found her literary calling at a young age. Now, a graduate of the Ryerson University journalism program, she tries to stay true to her lit roots and dabbles in fiction writing and varying prose, in addition to her freelance work generating online content for Toronto-based companies and blogs.

Zak is a dedicated journal-er and loves superheroes, Degrassi and caffeine in any form. She eventually hopes to join a news outlet as an in-house obit writer.
