Write for My Blog

One of things I learned from doing my research was how cathartic and comforting it can be to talk about things, with people with whom we feel safe, about things that are otherwise difficult to talk about or are “not to be spoken about.” So if you are Muslim, and you would like to share a story with others about issues of sex, sexual health, and/or mental health I’d love to hear from you. I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to publish everything sent to me (writing rules would need to be followed), but I’d still love to hear from you.

Please email me at sobia.ali-faisal@outlook.com

Writing rules:

Safety is of utmost importance to me. Please use safe language always. This article is a great place to start to understand inclusive language. You can further explore the Everyday Feminism website for other helpful articles on the topic.

Whether you want to share your own name is your decision alone and you are more than welcome to. But you are also more than welcome to create a pseudonym and maintain your own anonymity. Or not create a pseudonym but still remain anonymous.

When speaking of others please maintain their anonymity, if possible.

I do maintain the right to edit submitted pieces, but I will mainly edit to ensure safe language is used, and that the piece is appropriate for the audience.

Also, considering one of the foci of my blog is sexual health I insist that all posts remain respectful.
