Salam alaikum -
First of all may Allah bless you for such a useful site! :)

I just would like to give a correction for Al-Jumuah link:

http://www.aljumuah.com/

Jazakillah!

As-salamu Alaykum, and thank you for the correction. I have fixed it above. The address I had was for the old site based in the UK, but it looks like that site is down. The link you gave me is for the US site.

Assalamu alaikum Amel. I have recently discovered another Pakistan-based Islamic Magazine. I thought I'd let you know so that you can add it to this list of Muslim publications.
It is called "The Intellect":
http://intellectmagazine.net/index.html
They have guidelines for submissions on their website, but I do not know if they pay or not. The editor might be contacted about that.
Wishing you a blessed (remaining) Ramadan and Laylah Al-Qadr!
Wassalam.

Jazakillah khair for putting in all the work for making a list. I just would like to point out that Muslim Girl magazine is no longer publishing, and Sal.am has redesigned itself into a social networking site for Muslims and thus no longer publishes writing.

precisiontext said...

As-salamu Alaykum, Sr. Serene, and thank you for letting blog readers know of these new developments. I am particularly surprised to hear about Muslim Girl as it seemed to have the big budget that is lacking for so many other publications. It really goes to show how fragile this industry is. I think I will create a new category for "No Longer Publishing." That way, we can keep track of these publications and check from time to time if they are back in business.

Assalaamu'alaikum

JazakumAllahukhairan for creating this blog. It is very inspirational and helpful for aspiring writers such as myself.

Do you know which of the plentiful magazines and publishers you have mentioned are the most famous amongst readers? I could send my poetry and short story pieces to everything listed but I rather do so to those most read. Do you have any suggestions?

Oh and Ramadan mubarak!

As-salamu Alaykum, Anonymous, and sorry for the long delay in posting your comment. I hope you and all blog readers had a wonderful Ramadan and Eid.

Regarding your inquiry, there are different factors to consider in determining which publications are most widely read. First of all, you might consider circulation numbers (often available on a magazine's website, or by writing to a publisher), but these numbers do not tell the whole story. I would also want to know the target audience and overall tone of the publication. Some magazines, for example, are more popular with women, while others are more popular among students. Some newspapers are distributed in mosques and grocery stores for free, while others are bought through subscription. In addition, different publications reach different geographical areas. Some publications have excellent, long-standing reputations, while others are newer and produced less professionally. These are all things to take into consideration when thinking about where you want your work published...so my best advice would be to study some of these markets and make sure they are going to reach the types of readers that you wish to reach. Also, make sure that they accept poetry and short stories, since many do not.

Do you know of any Muslim newspapers or other periodicals serving Muslim communities in the suburbs of New York City (especially Westchester and Rockland Counties)?

Thank you for posting this information. As of today (October 7), the site is still down for maintenance.
