Inoyat Hojieva (Tajik: Иноят Ҳоҷиева), mostly known as Farzona (Tajik: Фарзона) is a Tajik poet[1] and writer.

Farzona was born on November 3, 1960, in Khujand, Tajikistan. She was influenced by Forough Farrokhzad and other Persian poets, such as Firdowsi and Rumi.

Farzona's works are well known throughout Persian-speaking countries. She is known as Forough of Tajikistan. Her frequently playful and witty poetry draws on rich traditions of Persian literature in a rather humorous way. In late 1980, she wrote a poem called "To the Nation that Gave Birth to Ahmad Zohir".
