About saaleha

I am a freelance writer and photographer (look for me as ShootCake). I have an MA in Creative Writing from Rhodes University, Grahamstown and my first poetry collection, Zikr, was published by uHlanga Press in 2018. I would like to one day create a confessional recipe book in measures of rhythm and breath.
