what our community says

I don't know how to start but truly Daastan is like a family to me. A source through which I got my identity. I would truly recommend every Pakistani writer to publish their work through this platform. The quality of hard copies is best.
Daastan is one of the leading publishing platforms of #Pakistan which is enabling #authors to #monetize their time, content and skills.
Today, marks the 2nd anniversary of my becoming a published author. Penning #UnveilingtheUnknown at 16, I struggled to make sense of the publishing world for 2 years; finding hope in an emerging literary platform, @MyDaastan that made my wildest dream come true!
Yesterday was straight out of a dream! Thank you infinitely for powering this event and promoting/supporting local artists the way that you are! You’re superstars!
Talked about the psychological needs of #journalists working on ground. It was a conference organised by the collaboration of @MyDaastan and @UNESCO in Islamabad.
Panel Discussion on #interfaith #harmony. Event hosted by @mydaastan.
Daastan believes in using literature and story telling as a tool to bring people from diverse backgrounds together for a greater cause i.e. harmony.
