For the Season 3 finale, Makda sits down with novelist-turned-poet Farzana Doctor for a conversation about her debut collection YOU STILL LOOK THE SAME. The pair talk unorthodox organizing principles, building self-care into the writing process, the blurry distinction between speaker and poet, and more.

Farzana Doctor is the Tkaronto-based author of four critically acclaimed novels: Stealing Nasreen, Six Metres of Pavement, All Inclusive, and Seven. You Still Look The Same is her debut poetry collection. Farzana is also the Maasi behind Dear Maasi, a new sex and relationships column for FGM/C survivors. She is also an activist and part-time psychotherapist.
