About Me

Hello wordsmith!

Being a writer can be very lonely and it’s not the best feeling in the world. You know you’ve got the passion to tell your stories but are either too scared to try or  have no clue where to begin. So, you remain as you are, your writing potential shoved aside, instead of being harnessed.  You go about daily life, ignoring that nagging voice at the  at the back of your mind telling you to step up and fulfill your writing  dreams.

Sound familiar? Yep, I know. But, I invite you to stay with me while I tell you a little story.

I’m Hafsah, and I’ve experienced these episodes of doubt in my abilities as a writer, fear and feelings of not being good enough.

I decided in 2016, to break through the layers of fear of shackles of doubt that were holding me back.
I started to share my work and published my first ever web-series; The Thorn in The Rose; up on my blog. Since then I’ve gone on to publish several other short stories& web-series, including: To Err is Human; one of the longlisted titles during the Watty’s 2018 awards and voted First Runner Up (Fiction Category), in the Your Choice Awards 2018. (Wheels are in motion to publish it in paperback pretty soon, so keep an eye out for that!)

 Today, I’ve made it my goal to help passionate women who are looking to hone their writing skills so that they can achieve their goals of becoming writers/authors. Via coaching and trainings, I’ve gone on to help dozens of women come into their own as writers and achieve transformation in the way they write and perceive themselves as writers.
Would you like to unearth and nurture your writing potential? Or you’d like to gain the confidence as a writer? Maybe you need a hand to guide you to hone your existing skills and use them to make a mark in the world, no matter how little?

So there you have it. A little somethin’ somethin’ about me and what I do. Feel free to browse the website, I’m sure you’ll find something that’s just right for you.

Feedback&Reviews

Here’s what some of my clients have to say.

“I’m pleased with Hafsah’s coaching. She’s helped me refine what was ‘good writing’, and allowed me to explore my natural aptitude as a writer. She’s very detailed, misses nothing and gives valuable feedback. I’m convinced she’s got the craft and I’d work with her any day!

Working with Hafsah on my book was such an amazing experience. She didn’t just work on it, she carried me through the whole process and turned all my ideas into a brightly coloured and well structured recipe book. I will definitely work with her on my next book and many more after that.
