Anthology of Short Stories by Muslim American Women: Call For Essays

March 20, 2007

I recieved an email today from one of the co-editors of this compilation of Essays. 

Please feel free to cut and paste to your own blogs:

Call for Essays:

We are putting together a collection of essays by Muslim American women to be published in a book.   Each essay must be written by a practicing Muslim American woman, either born and/or predominantly raised in the U.S. We are looking for contributors between the ages of 22 and 35 who are born into a Muslim family and claim Islam as their faith.

Please write articulately about a personal aspect of your life with regards to being a Muslim American woman.   The essay should express in some way how your Muslim-ness and American-ness affect your life.   This need not be overt but the essay should come from that perspective.        

Essays should be no longer than 1000 words and will be edited for clarity. All submissions may not be accepted, but every submission will be considered.   Please include name, age, birthplace, sect of Islam, profession/field, and anything else about yourself that might be useful for us to know (short bios are fine).

This is a project that, Inshallah, will appear across a variety of platforms, both national and international.

Please send all entries and/queries via email to:
