#FeatureFriday – Mansoor Syed

Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Mansoor Syed. Here is our twist on an interview.

  • A quote that inspires you:


  • Your writing process described as a song: Julian Casablancas+The Voidz – Human Sadness (Official Audio)
  • You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:

I write because I feel like I have to write. Writing helps keep me sane even in the most troubling times. The fall and winter of 2017 was the most miserable time of my life—writing poetry, stories, and songs helped me make it out healthily. I also told some pretty hefty tales in the process of coping. Isn’t that just wonderful?

  • What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?
