About / Contact

My name is Maryam, but most people call me Maz – I don’t mind either, so go ahead and call me Bob.

I write about social issues and general wellbeing. I’ve written about Brexit, domestic violence, religion and depression, LGBTQ+ rights, emotional abuse, issues affecting women of colour, social work, DNA tests… The list continues. Over the years I have written for The Guardian, Buzzfeed, The Independent, Gal-Dem and various others. You can check it all out on the ‘My Work’ page on my site.

I’m also a regular contributor at the BBC, having appeared on various radio stations on the network and creating visual and audio content with them. Again, that can be found on ‘My Work‘ page.

Okay, so that’s the formal stuff done. Other facts about me: I have a cat called Maanu (pronounced Meh-noo) who is 14 years old and has my heart. thumbnail_20190524_122022

I’m south London born and raised, my star sign is Cancer, and I am indeed a bit of a hermit crab most of the time. I am currently writing a book and I hope it will be complete soon. I’ll keep you posted.

If you want to contact me about anything – commissions, collaborations or any other work related stuff – you can email me:

His book, The Search for Beauty in Islam is one of my most cherished books.
