About Me

A Philomath that loves the arts, Jamal is a corporate Rottweiler, film & theatre actor/director/producer/writer, standup comic, poet, author and performing artist living in Dubai. His 7 years in the city, the longest among the dozen or so he has called home, have managed to temper the temper, somewhat.

His poetry, fiction, essays and recently art, have been published in the Anthology – Nowhere Near A Damn Rainbow, in the journal Sukoon, in Rip/Torn Magazine, Uncommon:Dubai, Five2One Magazine #thesideshow, The Syzygy Poetry Journal, Cease, Cows, Literary Orphans and multiple issues of Alphanumeric, Peardrop Journal and Zoetic Press’ Non Binary Review.

He was the Zoetic Press Nominee for Sundress Publications' 'Best of Net' Anthology at AWP 2017. His manuscripts - 'Padmavati Colony & Other Stories' and his poetry chapbook 'The Binary Illiterate' - are presently shortlisted for publication in 2017.

Until then, he can be found living life as an open facebook (fb.me/jamalhiqbal), tweeting away (@jamalhiqbal) hibernating on a non-updated website (jamalhiqbal.com) or curbing his narcissitic selfi(e)sh streak instagraming only his art and photography (@jamalhiqbal)
