This piece is at heart a study of me, a view from inside my room and inside my mind.
Muna Mir is currently a struggling senior, trying to make her dreams of nerding out about books for the rest of her life a reality. Her favourite topic of conversation is the portrayal of women in classical literature but she will more than happily digress into discussing her cats if you give her the opportunity to. She can be found listening to Hozier, Mitski and Taylor Swift while trying to cover up plot holes in her stories.
Favorite Authors & Artists
Carmen Maria Machado, Madeline Miller, Mona Awad
Writing is hard, but growing up is perhaps even harder. The past few years have been a blur of trying to discover myself and the world we live in. In the midst of this my writing provided a sense of stillness. Trapping floating memories on a page, above all else, I hope to invoke a sense of atmosphere in my writing, and remind myself that it is the little moments that matter most of all.
This piece chronicles a drive upstate across the Taconic, feeling each bend in the road, looking for familiar trees out of my window.
