SISTERS Magazine

SISTERS Magazine has finally been launched. This is a digital magazine that requires a (paid) subscription in order to read the articles. The editor is Na'ima B. Robert, author of the popular From my Sisters' Lips. It will be interesting to see how the digital model works out.

Read an interview with Na'ima here.

Also check out the Guidelines for Writers at SISTERS Magazine. Here are some topics that are currently needed:

Personal stories of coming to or returning to Islam

Personal experiences that have led to Islamic spiritual growth

Articles on issues of interest to Muslim women in the areas of self, family, community and the world (e.g. Sisters in Cyberspace, Muslim businesswomen in the developing world, challenges facing Muslim youth etc.)

Stories of hope from conflict areas

Profiles and interviews with inspirational Muslim women around the world and practising Muslims making a positive difference to their communities

General articles on health, wellbeing, exercise and beauty, preferably with an Islamic slant

Columns, diaries, blogs

Poetry

Reviews of restaurants, hotels, travel destinations from a Muslim perspective, in the UK, US and South Africa, as well as elsewhere
