ASMA AL JAILANI (Asma A.J) is an Emirati writer and poet based in sunny Abu Dhabi, UAE.
She works as a communications professional by day, and a writer and poet by night (and on
weekends). In her free time (almost always at night), Asma spends her time writing short
stories and possible chapters of a possible novel, scribbling poetry or blogging about books.
She also writes articles on Medium.com on a range of topics, including personal growth and
women empowerment. Her opinion pieces have been featured on The National, a widely
read English newspaper in the UAE. Asma is a founding member of Untitled Chapters, a
homegrown initiative by Emirati women for Emirati women. Untitled Chapters allows
female Emirati writers the space to grow in their craft and share their written work with
their targeted audience.
