Here are some Q&A’s to shed light on writing material
Q: How do you think I can contribute? In what ways specifically?
A: Freedom of choice will work best; meaning that when you are inspired – your writing ignites..so to speak. Insha’Allah your work will be a great asset to the mission of Imaan Magazine, without feeling constrained in any way.
Q: What subject matter would you like me to write on and what word count do you expect?
A: Reviews and Commentary on issues pertinent to Muslims (in particular, but not exclusively). FROM AN AMERICAN MUSLIM CONTEXT- THIS IS VITALLY IMPORTANT! It is important that we honor the uniqueness in being an American Muslim..in fact, The Qur’an invites us to embrace our culture. The beauty of Islam is that it is a “working” system for spiritual cultivation – and copy written by no human being. It is for ALL.
Q: When will the deadlines be typically if this is a monthly publication? Also, is this print or purely digital media?
A: Deadlines for ALL content is the 24th day of each month at midnight. Initially, this is a web-based magazine. We will revisit the viability of print after a year.
