Summary: From orientalist exoticism to hijab-bashing tales of "liberation" to terrorist thrillers, the literary landscape is littered with other people's attempts to tell our stories (or to tell their own stories using Muslims as counterpoints). Often these charlatans down out our own attempts at representation. But in these tumultuous times, we can't afford to whisper any longer. It's time for us to raise our voices with stories that are authentic and entertaining, marketing that is clever and effective, and outreach that is sincere and productive insha'Allah. This course features weekly readings and writing exercises that each focus on an individual aspect of writing, along with semester-long work on a creative project. Lessons on submitting your work, choosing a publication route and effective marketing ideas round out the syllabus. By the end of this course, students will have sharper writing skills and a firmer idea of what to do after the writing is done.
