Muslim Publications Seeking Writers

If you are interested in writing for Muslim publications, check out the following list of magazines, newspapers and websites in need of writers. Although I have done my best to be accurate, you will need to confirm the information presented with each publication. Today's paying market may become a non-payer tomorrow (and vice versa). Editors change, guidelines change, budgets change...and publications that were once thriving can suddenly disappear. In short, do your research, and do not take anything for granted.

Paying Markets
This is a list of 17 publications known to pay freelance writers.

Non-Paying Markets
This is a list of publications that do not usually pay writers. Nearly 30 markets listed.

Unknown - More Information Needed
If a publication is on this list, it means I have not been able to determine whether it is a paying market. More than 20 markets listed.

NEW: Islamic Publications for Children and Teens
If you like writing for children, you'll want to check out this list of publications for Muslim youth. Includes both paying and non-paying markets.

No Longer Publishing
This is a list of publications that are (to the best of my knowledge) no longer publishing.

If you have information about another Muslim market (paying or not), send me an e-mail, and I will add it to the list.
