Muslim Women Writers' Workshop - International

The Muslim Women Writers' Workshop International (MWWWI) is "an international organization for Muslim women involved in the literary arts. It was established to provide a voice for those previously voiceless; - a forum to nurture and develop published writers, aspiring writers, and supporters of the above. We believe that all power is from Allah (SWT) and through the application of the Qur’an and Sunnah we become empowered in our lives and writing.

"We are a new and growing multicultural Muslim organization and welcome Muslim women of all ages, occupations and ethnicities to join us in the sisterhood of writing. MWWWI was established for all writers, professional and those aspiring to become accomplished in the field."

Meetings for members of the organization take place each month in Sharjah, UAE. Visit the website for more details.

Thank you so much for creating a blog for Muslim writers. I am just getting my feet wet as a writer. My writing has been transformed by conversion to Islam. Everything is different, thanks to Allah!

Thankyou for the information. I wrote to them through their website more than a week ago but haven't got any reply/acknowledgment yet. Are they active with their site?
