About

Hello and Salaams (peace!),

My name is Sidra Ansari. Welcome to my blog!

Looking to find Peace through Prayer and Love, click to buy my brand new Non Fiction book, published by Beacon Books here!

SHORT BIO

Sidra Ansari is a teacher and a freelance writer. She has been shortlisted for the AsianWriter Short Story Prize and has been selected for the Penguin WriteNow Mentoring Program for underrepresented writers. She is also a Creative Non-Fiction Reader for the Mud Season Review– ‘An Art and Lit Review celebrating artistic creation, community, and all the wide-ranging voices that tramp and track in the mud of human experience’.

She officially began her writing journey after she broke her wrist in January 2018 and was forced to stop all extra-curricular activities (not to mention suspend the children’s taxi service) to actually sit down to write. She lives in the West Midlands with her husband of sixteen years and five children mashaAllah. You can reach her at @sidra_writes on Twitter and follow her blog here!

Thank you very much! God bless you ❤️
