My name is Karima and I am about to embark on the final (I hope) draft of my second novel. It is technically under contract to a small publisher located here in Senegal, West Africa, but I haven’t received much help from them in terms of editing so far. I like to read good fiction and fall in love with other people’s work. Got my MFA, but writing in English in a Francophone country can be pretty lonely, so am looking for community…
I also have 4 kids, so sometimes the biggest challenge to my writing is finding the time, but I manage… Like as of late, flash fiction has kept me writing. Albeit at 4 in the morning, but I am still writing!
Best to all,
