ABOUT: Khalida Moosa
Khalida is a stay-at-home mom who has little inclination for cooking, sewing or baking. She is a wordsmith and loves the musicality and rhythm of the written word. She is also an avid reader and enjoys sharing good reads. Khalida currently hosts a community book club in the South of Johannesburg.
Her poem was inspired by a need to give voice to the words which have remained silent for too long.
Khalida is interested in narratives which defy social norms. She is attracted to writers who break boundaries around issues which address gender inequality, sex and cultural stereotypes.
She has an obsession with collecting beautiful notebooks which remain ink unstained and instead accumulates bits of paper stringing thoughts into sentences.
When not reading, writing or gardening, Khalida enjoys spending time with her husband, two kids and much adored Scottish terrier.
