The Woke Writer Course


The Woke Writer is a transformative on demand course designed to guide writers through the challenges of writer’s block, considering the elements of faith, emotions, womanhood, and beyond!

Exclusive writing course for Muslim women.
Created by me, Aishah Alam, founder of Strange Inc. and co-author of ‘Lockdown.’, ‘Poetic Justice’
Focuses on self-discovery, inspiration, and aligning creativity with faith.

Have you ever felt like

  • You’re drowning in writer’s block, as if you can’t push to the end of the page?
  • Frustrated by the uninspiring nature of traditional writing courses?
  • Longed for a course that sparks creativity, aligning with your unique experiences?
  • Craved a writing journey that dives into faith, emotion, and the essence of womanhood?

Well, your not alone…

We’ve had a lot of people tell us that they’re having a really hard time finishing their books. So we did a little research and found some pretty interesting statistics.

In one study from Turkey, only 6% of first-year students surveyed reported never experiencing writer’s block. Only 6%. An overwhelming 70% faced this beast occasionally. Among U.S. graduate students, it’s a common struggle, with 55-64% not completing their dissertations even a decade after starting.

And check this out, out of the 97% of people who embark on the noble quest of writing a novel, only 3% persevere.

  • 30 out of 1,000 souls go on to finish what they started.
  • Merely 6 out of those 30 see their creation in print.

The problem isn’t perfecting your knowledge on writing craft.

It is the lack of what makes you want to write in the first place… It is Inspiration it self.
