Islamic Topics of General Interest

studentBMJ is a web site and monthly medical journal "for students with an interest in medicine." It's not a Muslim publication, but I really like the way one writer came up with the idea of writing an article on How Islam Changed Medicine for this journal. It is written for a general audience and would spark the curiosity of almost anyone interested in such topics.

Opportunities like this exist in almost every publication out there - from newspapers to magazines to web sites. Right now, for example, Learning through History Magazine (which is geared to homeschoolers) is seeking articles on the Mughal Empire. Check out their Guidelines for Writers for more specific information.

Have you ever written an article on an Islamic topic for a general audience? Let us know by leaving a comment.
