Salaam & Hello
I’m Hajera Khaja, writer, editor, and creative writing teacher. Anytime I’ve been away from the page for too long, I feel unmoored, like I’m not myself anymore. I suspect it is the same for you, dear writer. Welcome! I love working with writers because of the joy it brings me — to see writers who doubt begin to believe in themselves again, break through their struggles and resistance, and show up on the page in all their brilliance.
Writing can be a lonely task. But you don’t have to do it alone. I can guide you through your struggles and provide structure and accountability to reach your goals faster.
Grounded Writers is an online community for Muslim writers. Surround yourself with writers who will inspire, motivate, and support you.
“Hajera has a way of finding the very essence of what I’m trying to convey with my writing and coaching me into expressing it in a way that’s really going to land with readers. I keep coming back to her for editing advice.”
“Hajera’s skill and experience offered crucial insight and feedback on how to make my story come to life. I was so hesitant to reach out for help in my writing journey, but am so grateful now that I did.“
“Hajera provided numerous examples and details for consideration, and highlighted areas of strength that left me encouraged and motivated. By far this has been the best experience I’ve had with an editor.”
