About the Author

Deborah Kahan Kolb is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn and currently living in the Bronx. Much of her poetry reflects the unique experiences and challenges of growing up in, and ultimately leaving, the insular world of Hasidic Judaism.
Deborah earned her BA and MA degrees in English/Creative Writing from CUNY Queens College, where she served as editor of the Queens College Journal of Jewish Studies and was the recipient of the James E. Tobin Poetry Award, the Lois Hughson Essay Prize, and the Essay Prize in Holocaust/Genocide Studies. She earned her MS in School Administration and Supervision from Touro College, after which she served as principal of a private school for Jewish children of Central Asian descent.
Deborah's work has appeared or is forthcoming in Poetica, Voices Israel, Veils, Halos & Shackles, The New Verse News, Tuck, Literary Mama, Poets Reading the News, 3 Elements Literary Review, and Rise Up Review, and has been selected as a finalist for the Anna Davidson Rosenberg Poetry Award.
