Ever since she can remember, Hind has wanted to write– be it poems, fictional tales of young girls out on adventures, cryptic diary notes or letters to her friends. Language is an indelible part of her upbringing, fantastical inner worlds and everyday relationship with the world around her. Hind’s contemporary work moves between the poetic realm and the commercial corporate one. From 12-page poems, to literary essays, to websites, voice over scripts, brochures and even copywriting for ads, Hind has written for her community, her clients, and herself.

In 2011, Hind was awarded a residency for 12-weeks as scholar at the International Writers Program, Iowa University. During the residency, she wrote a film script, and poems, and performed in many states.

Part of her work is also editorial consultancy, giving feedback to scriptwriters and writers on their texts, a skill she truly enjoyed exercising during her time as a film professor. She is currently working on her third poetry book, and a long article exploring her complicated relationship with her family heritage and her homeland of Palestine.
