Ayisha is a British Muslim, lifelong Londoner, and lover of books. She read English Literature and went on to complete an MA in Creative Writing (though told most of her family it was an MA in English Literature – Creative Writing is not a subject, after all.)

Ayisha’s Recent Updates

“What a luxury anything organic is: to take your time; to have the lived experience. To hear what a person has to say about love and say, ‘Yes! I know that feeling. It shattered my soul and it was beautiful . . .”
Ayisha Malik, Sofia Khan is Not Obliged

“I never realised that the weight of disappointment rests mostly on your heart.”
Ayisha Malik, Sofia Khan is Not Obliged

“One of the issues about the whole ‘being alone’ stance is not having anyone to share the world’s problems with. A person’s been scooped out of your life and so you speak into a pit of nothingness. Or you don’t speak at all, depending on your tendency towards soliloquy.”
Ayisha Malik, Sofia Khan is Not Obliged
