Mehdi Allam

Fez, Morocco


Hi, my name is Mehdi Allam, I am 15 years old and have recently moved to Morocco. I study at the Amicitia School (American School Of Fes). I have been writing for about 4 years now, usually I just write for fun, to be honest I had never thought about getting some of my work published. Many people have told me I should contact a literary agent and send them a sample of my work. At the moment i am working on a book called 'The Elements'.
I am really looking for a literary agent right now, below is the opening to the first chapter of 'The Elements'.

'I woke up that night startled and hot, my head was pounding and I could not lift it up. You now when you wake up, not knowing at all where you are ? Yeah i woke up like that. To be honest it scared the hell out of me. My eyes stung as i tried to open them , i had an extremeley bright light infront of me. I finally managed to open my eyes, i could see strings of goo in front of my eyes, it was disgusting. The first thing i noticed was a group of men must have ranged from age 20 50, all standing around me holding clipboards and taking notes. A sudden shock hit me, i started to go red, i could feel my ears burning.'
