In here first editorial Mashal states, “Words have power, and it is these very words that we’ve wanted to showcase with WRITERS. … WRITERS is a collective effort of a group of individuals and I’m so incredible proud of what we’ve accomplished with our first issue.” The magazine was fully designed by Raina Zakir, our talented designer who spend hours of time editing the magazine and making sure it would look perfect.
