Announcing the Salam Award Recipient

M.T. Khan is the recipient of the $1,000 Salam Award Scholarship for a student of Pakistani origin attending Clarion West’s Six-Week Workshop. The award is sponsored by the Salam Award for Imaginative Fiction, which promotes science fiction and related genres of writing in Pakistan and supports writers of the Pakistani diaspora. Khan will join the class of 2024 in Seattle this summer.

M.T. Khan is a speculative fiction author with a penchant for all things myth, science, and philosophy. She focuses on stories that combine all three, dreaming of evocative worlds and dark possibilities. Her debut novel, Nura and the Immortal Palace, hit shelves in 2022 and won the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Younger Readers. When she’s not writing, M.T. Khan can be found traveling the world or cracking physics equations, as she graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. Born in Lahore, Pakistan, she currently resides in Toronto, Canada, with a hyperactive cat and an ever-increasing selection of tea. Her newest novel, Amir and the Jinn Princess, releases July 2024.
