As a queer Nigerian-American woman, and as the child of a Muslim-Nigerian immigrant and a Black American man born in Jim Crow Alabama, Literary Agent Hafizah Geter is particularly keen to read stories from marginalized writers, especially African and Indigenous writers, and writers from the South. She is excited by narratives that, regardless of genre, address disability justice, environmental justice, or transgender justice in some way, and stories that push against Islamophobia, anti-blackness, and heteronormativity. She believes, unequivocally, that black lives matter. As an agent, writer, and human, she is in love with stories. She is looking to take on writers who feel the same.
