Salaaam and hi! Thank you for visiting my blog.
Seeking Words began as a small project to keep me going while I studied for a Masters in Literature and Creative Writing; it has since grown into something much dearer to me.
As an English teacher, I am now embarking on my second year teaching in Qatar (you can read all about my experiences here and here). As a writer, well I’m trying to complete previous projects before coming up with any more half-cooked ideas, y’know what I mean?
Seeking Words encompasses a range of topics: reflections as an expat; my thoughts on issues like religion, male privilege, culture, Islam and more; as well as some poetry and fiction. A friend recently read From the grapevine and told me that behind my ‘radiant smile lies an ocean of emotions’. By that I think she meant I write about some pretty dark stuff; I kind of agree.
Drop a comment below to let me know what you think – be sure to leave a link to your blog too!
P.s. One of my dark pieces was featured on Discover, you can check it out at Homeless daughters of a hybrid diaspora.
