Website Seeks Holiday Stories

A website called Common Ties is seeking holiday stories of all kinds. It would be great to see stories written by Muslims – either about the Muslim holidays or (another idea) converts to Islam writing about their reflections during the non-Muslim holidays that they no longer take part in. That fits in well with the theme of the submissions, which is:

“The holidays are a time for reconnecting with family and friends, but that this can lead to unexpected drama. We are looking for stories not only about the holidays themselves, and how they were celebrated, but the other underlying issues that came about due to the family gatherings.”

This is a paying market ($100-$200 for stories of 750-1500 words). Here is some more information and Guidelines for Submission.
