Welcome to my Substack. I started writing this in January 2020, months after my debut book “How To Cure A Ghost” came out, and just a few weeks before our entire understanding of the planet went into a standstill as we entered the global coronavirus pandemic.

For the last few years, the focus of this newsletter has moved from places of spirituality and God to a place of politics. Much like my own writing that moves from the sentimental to the political in each book, whether How To Cure A Ghost, or Like A Bird, my novel, Who Is Wellness For?, my first book of non-fiction and even Survival Takes A Wild Imagination, my latest book of poems—there is always a place for the existence of the multitudinous ways my mind correlates and processes information.

Your subscription, especially your paid subscription, allows me to fund myself while I work on two new books and a few other projects, and your support helps me ground myself in a financial safety that as a working writer/artist I haven’t received from institutional support. Thank you.

yrs, fariha
