What our attendees are saying

“I enjoyed the interactions and insights the most. My Biggest insight was commitment and the importance of accountability.”

– Fatima Zahra

“After the session I felt satisfied emotionally and content. For the live workshop, I enjoyed the self-reflection and self-healing .”

– Naimah B

“It’s a whole different level of satisfaction and acknowledgement seeing sisters talk about writing, their work, and just buckling down to write. Writing felt real after the sessions, and so worthy. One can watch all the videos and podcasts in the world and still not feel this feeling that’s present in a close-knit community, alhamdulillah.”
