Priyanka Taslim is a writer represented by Quressa Robinson of Nelson Literary Agency. Priyanka writes swoony young adult and adult novels starring the Bengali, Muslim characters she wishes she’d seen growing up.

When she isn’t writing, she’s teaching, reading, or otherwise geeking out.


Priyanka Taslim is a writer, teacher, and lifelong New Jersey native.

Having grown up in a bustling Bangladeshi diaspora community, surrounded by her mother’s entire clan and many aunties of no relation, her writing often features families, communities, and all the drama therein.

Currently, Priyanka teaches 9th grade English by day and tells all kinds of stories about Bangladeshi characters by night. Her writing usually stars spunky Bangladeshi heroines finding their place in the world…and a little swoony romance, too.
