I am Kulović Selma, a published fiction and nonfiction writer from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, writing both in Bosnian and English languages. I hold an MA in English Language and Literature.
I have been a member of the Sarajevo Writers’ Workshop since 2012 when it was founded by our mentor, writer Stacy Mattingly. With SWW, I participated in public readings, and I have performed my fiction (a piece that included singing a cappella) at the Sarajevo War Theatre (SARTR).
My poetry has appeared in H.O.W. Journal. I presented my academic essay “The Other in One: The Otherness in Golding’s Lord of the Flies” at the International Interdisciplinary Student Conference at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, after which it got published in their essay collection. The paper has been since translated in Slovene and republished.
I participated in the University of Iowa’s International Writing Program during their first Narrative Witness exchange – A Caracas-Sarajevo Collaboration – where I published two short stories, Child of Stone and Among the White Flowers.
I published two more short stories in journal NEMA. NEMA also published a review / report from the 54.Sarajevo Days of Poetry which I wrote with my colleague and friend, Nermana Česko.
I recently participated in The Borders Project – a collaboration between the SWW and the Narrative Collective from Atlanta, USA.
I am currently working on three more exciting projects: one is my own, and two are amazing collaborations, and I will have more info on these to share very soon.
