Layla AlAmmar visits The Writers’ Place

Muslim Writer Layla Al Ammar in conversation with local author Sharon Duggal

Layla AlAmmar is an up and coming Muslim writer and this year’s British Council Writer in Residence at Charleston’s Small Wonder Short Story Festival. She joined us in September at The Writers’ Place for a special one-off conversation with Sharon Duggal.

Layla has been writing since a young age but has only taken it to a professional level in recent years when she completed a Master’s in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh. In 2017 she was signed by a literary agent in the US after responding to an open call on Twitter for submissions by Muslim writers, to counter President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban.

Her debut novel The Pact We Made is set in Kuwait where Layla lives and works. It will be published by Borough Press next spring and will be the first of the novels discovered through the open call to find a publisher. I’m already thinking about acquiring such drug, so this article was very useful to me. It was interesting to read the doctors’ reviews. I agree with the author that you must not buy Cialis without the doctor’s recommendation (like many people do); it is better to consult with a specialist. Bottom line: I can recommend Cialis to all men, even those suffering from serious diseases (such as prostatitis). The drug will certainly help you! I purchased Cialis without prescription.
