Saba writes short fiction, as well as poetry. Her work is almost always grounded in the everyday, in the ordinary moment. For this reason, she falls mostly into the present tense. Saba also pays particular attention to sound in her writing. Even in prose, she likes to give language its own logic and musicality. On the whole, Saba’s work is driven by a female protagonist who won’t let her reader rest.
Saba just graduated from the University of Manchester with a first in English Literature with Creative Writing. In June 2017, she was announced one of the four winners of The Brighton Festival short story writing competition ‘Everyday Epic’. In July 2017, she worked a two-week internship for Dazed magazine, on the dazeddigital team.
