Hello Darlings! I'm Aminah Mae Safi and I'm a writer who explores art, fiction, feminism, and film. I also love puns, oxford commas, and heists.

My short story, "Be Cool, For Once," will be featured in WNDB Young Adult Anthology,                 FRESH INK,  after winning the 2016 We Need Diverse Books Short Story Contest. Check it out if you like nerdy girls with impossible crushes.

My debut novel, NOT THE GIRLS YOU'RE LOOKING FOR will be available from Feiwel & Friends in June 2018. It's my ode to mean girls, messy friendships, and bad decisions. Be the first to know about release dates and pre-orders by getting signed up here!

Once upon a time, I wanted to be a professor. I have a BA from the University of Southern California in Art History and an MA from the University of Chicago. Ask me about art, or, check out the art archive.
