While some writers make a dollar per article writing for content mills, others make a dollar per word writing for high-end magazines and other publications. A thousand bucks for a thousand words is a reality for many writers, and it can be your reality, too. The BIG BOOK of High-Paying Markets, a new Kindle e-book by Amel S. Abdullah, will show you how.

  1. As-salamu  Alaykum, and thank you for your inquiry.

    I can’t see any particular reason not to seek publication in a mainstream publication, especially if it helps your work reach a wider audience and builds bridges with the non-Muslim community. I view this as something positive.

    The main thing I would be cautious of is whether the publication blatantly promotes material that is contrary to Islamic principles. I don’t mean “regular” publications like magazines and newspapers containing articles and viewpoints you disagree with (this is inevitable), but publications and websites that (for example) exploit women or contain content that is vulgar, pornographic, etc. – especially when that is the sole aim of the publication.

    You should examine each publisher (Muslim or not) on a case-by-case basis to see if you are comfortable working with them – and if you have any doubts about a particular situation, feel free to discuss it further by leaving a comment or posting another question.
