Boshra Rasti-Ghalati is an Iranian-Canadian expatriate, writer and educator.
She currently lives in Qatar as a teacher.
She is the author of several published poems, “Connection in the City”, a poem about the city of Surrey, BC, Canada, as well as the author of “In the Chrysalis”, a poem about the COVID-19 pandemic, published in Together…Apart, an anthology of creative works published by HBKU Press.
Her short stories have been published by Grattan Street Press, Literally Stories, and South Florida Poetry Journal.
Boshra draws inspiration from the teenage mind, one she may not have fully outgrown.
She also is an avid runner who enjoys the self-torture of running in Qatar.
She has other eclectic interests such as making vegan ice cream.
She may or may not use a pen name in the future to prevent a life-long tendency that people have of butchering her name.
She hopes to someday make her home somewhere that doesn’t include burning up due to the consequences of global warming.
