MYM Writer Fellowship

The Muslim Youth Musings (MYM) Writer Fellowship is a free 12-week program covering how to become a consistent writer, build your confidence, find your voice, and join the greater community of global Muslim writers. Through weekly live sessions, you will learn essential writing skills and will work closely with your mentors and co-fellows to publish at least two polished pieces for our website, walk away with skills to critically look at your own writing, build a writer’s habit, and establish yourself as a writer.
