My name is Mala, although for most writing-related interactions I go by Miral--I guess you could say that it's sort of a pen name. I'm a fairly new writer--I started writing full-time only a few months ago, though I'm definitely not as productive as I should be! I enjoy writing poetry (on different topics), and short fiction for both children and adults. I'm looking forward to receiving constructive feedback for my output from different writers on this site and forum, and to reading other writers' submissions as well. Aside from writing, my interests include watching space dramas, reading fiction (mainly short stories), and traveling.
