Celeste Mohammed

Celeste has been a lawyer for sixteen years but she has been a writer for as long as she can remember.

In 2016, she graduated from Lesley University, Cambridge, Massachusetts with an MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction). Her MFA thesis was a collection of linked short-stories set on the Caribbean island of Trinidad, where she currently lives with her husband and daughter. Celeste continues to work on that collection.

Celeste counts VS Naipaul, Junot Diaz, Alex La Guma, Margaret Atwood and Marlon James among her influences.

Her literary work has appeared in Solstice Literary Magazine, Postcard Shorts, The Rumpus and most recently, The New England Review.
