Mina Dahl

Mina Dahl is a Bulgarian-American poet currently fulfilling a BA in Written Arts at Bard College in Upstate New York. Her creative work focuses on the richness of Bulgarian culture, exploring themes of gender, origin of identity, memory, and familial history as perceived through the lens of nature, folklore, and tradition. Mina often describes her written work as a handsewn quilt of memories, each image meticulously curated to reflect the melancholy warmth of Bulgarian womanhood. She hopes to inspire her readers to experience themselves in a tactile way, urging them to further connect to the identities that they have inherited and the realities that they embody.
