Get Paid for Writing Letters to the Editor

This is an intiative sponsored by America's Muslim Family Magazine and Dr. Mohammed J. Khan to encourage Muslim youth (ages 12-24) to write letters to mainstream publications. Each quarter, they will pay $40 to the first 25 letters that are published in mainstream publications and mailed to the magazine. There is also a prize of $250 for the best letter published (from all the entries - not just the first 25). Read the details here:

The Young Muslim Writer's Alliance

Also: Don't miss these valuable tips for getting a letter published. There is great advice here for writers young and old.
