Jina Khayyer

Jina Khayyer is a Paris-based writer from Germany. The luminescent Jina studied abstract painting at the Bauhaus Art School before embarking upon her career in journalism via publications such as the daily newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Fantastic Man, 032c, Stern and Neon. Jina’s apartment in the chic 10th arrondissement is not only a hub of literary creativity it’s also a horticulturalist’s paradise – festooned with wild flowers, lavender, oleander trees, a Japanese maple tree and a fig tree.
