Tasneem Motala

The Rights Factory

If there’s literally anything to do as a kid growing up in rural Niagara, it’s read, and Tasneem did so much of it that she turned it into her career with a degree in English and Classical Civilizations and a post-grad in Publishing. Her experience includes writing beauty articles for Elevate Magazine, promoting Sonia Faruqi’s book, The Oyster Thief, to the book-blogging sphere as a marketing manager, and building her very own #ownvoices literary zine, KROS Magazine, from scratch.

Sometimes she doesn’t know what she’s looking for until it’s in her inbox, but some things are timeless. Retellings of well-known myths and classics, the enemies-to-lovers trope, and anything with mechas or androids are just a few of Tasneem’s favourite things when it comes to fiction. She also adores anything with something important to say hidden within all the action.

Tasneem is currently looking for character-driven MG and YA fiction, with or without a touch of magic, written by BIPOC authors.
