The award-winning Sudanese American poet Safia Elhillo ties the knot with her beau Christopher Nunez. She shared photos of the big day on Instagram. She looked stunning in a gorgeous red outfit accessorized with gold jewelry.

A few months before the wedding, Elhillo celebrated a different kind of milestone. A collection of poetry co-edited with Fatimah Asghar came out in April. Titled Halal If You Hear Me, the book has been praised for exploring muslim life in all its diversity and complexities. She is a Brunel prize winner and has been shortlisted for the Brittle Paper Awards. Her chapbook The January Children has been well-loved by critics and readers. Elhillo inspires a global community of poetry lovers with her words and her politics. We are delighted by the news of her wedding.

Congratulations to the newly married couple!  We wish them a happy union!
