Welcome!

Welcome to The Honeyed Quill (formerly The Spire), home to the writing of Shawna Ayoub Ainslie.

Shawna received an MFA in Creative Writing from Indiana University with a Fiction thesis on the Lebanese Civil War and resulting Lebanese-American diaspora. Her writing has appeared in Grist Online, Arab Comment, and Racialicious and has covered themes of race, place, abuse, mental health, parenting, faith, science fiction and fantasy.

In addition to writing, Shawna undertakes unrealistic crochet projects, crafts artisan scrubs and rubs, is an avid reader of paranormal detective romance, writes recipes, teaches Creative Writing, and often chooses to honor her children’s creative processes by not scraping glitter-glue off the table.
