Safina Mazhar's headshot

I have a published series consisting of three novels and a novella in the Young Adult/Fantasy fiction genre. The final instalment of the series is a work in progress. I have a large fanbase for my work. My fanfiction series under the pen name, Kurinoone, has accumulated over 18 million hits worldwide and have been translated into 13 different languages and 28 fanfictions, written by fans of my work. My stories are usually about family, brotherhoods and friendships, and explore complex relationships. 

I have facilitated Creative Writing workshops for various communities, including the BAME community. I have been involved in different writing projects, working with the University of Sheffield, Glasgow Women’s Library, Women’s Aid, Young Muslims, Creative Writing for Pollokshields Development Agency, and most recently, St Albert’s Primary School. I have worked with children, teens and adults.

I can run Creative Writing workshops, give talks, do readings, talk about self-publishing, and hold author events at schools and other organisations. I am bilingual and PVG registered.
