I’ve been a member of the Islamic Writers’ Alliance (IWA) for about a year now and have found the support and resources of this group to be extremely valuable. The IWA networks members through its online group (or egroup).
I’ve come into contact with many talented and hard-working Muslims from around the globe: poets, writers, publishers, editors, journalists, newcomers to writing and those who love just love reading. I’ve learnt more about the world of publishing and writing than I had ever known before. What’s more I’m happy to work with Muslims who value and advocate literacy in the Muslim community.
Here are some of the activities and accomplishments of the IWA:
- Grants book awards to Muslim schools.
- Conduct annual poetry and writing competitions.
- Publishes a quarterly online magazine
- Published two anthologies that feature the works of members
If your child is a student in an Islamic school, it’s possible he may have access to books in his/her school library through a school award given by the IWA. Maybe your teenage child or a friend or even you would like to enter a Muslim run writing/poetry competition, then you can with the IWA. Maybe you’ve read some of the Islamic stories or poems you liked in the IWA’s magazine and anthology.
The IWA is a non-profit organisation based in the U.S. that would love to have your support. You can join the IWA and/or give a donation.
