Welcome to Global Muslim Writers!

Global Muslim Writers is a publishing site/blog of short stories for Muslims around the world. It is for diverse stories, poems, social awareness, and articles from Muslims of various backgrounds. One of its main purposes is to create bi-yearly (two times a year) competitions to encourage Muslims to write stories (non-fiction and fiction with a twist of reality). All entries are free and winners receive a prize and a certificate of achievement for motivation and encouragement.

Join the competitions or vote for the winner.
