"I didn't think I would benefit as much as I did from the conference because I am not an author or serious writer. I was wrong! My voice matters, period."
"The speakers took me into a whole different realm of understanding on the impact of our authentic narratives as Muslim women. [The panels] encouraged me to be a better me!"
"Created to provide a platform to celebrate, promote, and encourage Muslim women writers, MWLC is a fantastic initiative for the ever-growing niche of Muslim women with literary ambitions."
"Daybreak Press lets women recognise their identities by taking a firm hold of their own narrative."
"Admittedly, this conference with brilliant, hard-working Muslim women did more than motivate me to write; it increased my interest in reading Islamic stories and writing for purpose, rather than achievement."
