10 Halal Writing Opportunities for May 10, 2009
In part, the reason I started this blog was to highlight the many opportunities of interest to Muslim writers. Generally speaking, these opportunities are not widely advertised, and it seemed like it would be handy to harness them into a central location. As the blog expands, however, it has become apparent that my readers want access to all types of writing opportunities so long as they are halal.
I will, of course, continue to list opportunities in the niche field of Muslim media, but you should also start watching this space for all types of writing jobs. Enjoy today's list, and let me know what you think of the idea in the comments section. I would be especially interested in hearing from people who apply to any of the jobs.
Please note that I cannot vouch for any of the jobs/companies listed (you must take the time to thoroughly investigate any job you apply for), but I am attempting to go one level beyond what is provided on most writing sites/blogs by filtering out the jobs that are obviously scammy or undesirable to practicing Muslims.
