Iman Hariri-Kia

Iman Hariri-Kia is an Iranian-American writer, editor, and author born and based in New York City. A recipient of the Annabelle Bonner medal and a nationally acclaimed journalist, she covers sex, relationships, identity, and adolescence. Iman has a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Georgetown University and previously served as the Deputy Editor of Her Campus, where she acted as an editorial site lead and relaunched the brand for a Gen Z audience. Prior to that, she was the Sex & Relationships Editor at Bustle and Elite Daily, where she hosted the YouTube series "No Shame Sex-Ed." Her work has appeared in Vogue, NY Mag’s The Cut, Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, and other outlets.

Apple Books named Iman one of its writers to watch in 2022. Her debut novel, A Hundred Other Girls, a smart, modern story about the shifting media landscape and one Middle Eastern-American writer finding her place in it, was published in summer 2022 to critical acclaim. It was named Barnes & Nobles' August Fiction Pick, as well as one of the best books of the summer by Good Morning America, USA Today, the New York Post, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, and more. Kirkus Reviews calls A Hundred Other Girls "a refreshing take on the classic media-insider-insider novel, championing the value of passion and thoughtfulness over career."

You can often find her writing about her personal life on the internet, much to her parents’ dismay.
