Adil Dad’s first published book ‘Pick Me Up’

Adil said: “I didn’t think I would create a burning passion for writing as much as I did.

“It’s a way to evoke feelings using words and is sort of addicting.

“I now publish a piece on my social media accounts daily and have managed to grow my audience by doing so. ”

Adil originally started sharing his poems with close friends.

Adil continued: “I was amazed by the feedback I got as they all mentioned that the work was ‘relatable’ and ‘healing’.

“Within my design course we were taught how to design a book, from layout to print, and with this knowledge I knew I could design something where I could store all my words for the world to see.

“At the moment I’ve published one book but I’ve another in the pipeline which is due early 2018.”
