Your characters donโ€™t have to be Muslim, your story doesnโ€™t have to be Islamic, but the magic has to be limited.

If youโ€™re interested in ideas for writing Muslim characters in #fantasy , check out @hijabi_soldier โ€™s post

Clarifying on magic::

Can include fantastical elements, not use of magic itself. No witchcraft, alchemy, sorcery, etc. I will consider characters who fight *against* the use of magic.

Dragons are fine.

I love strong female protagonists who maintain femininity and really look for Muslim characters who follow orthodoxy.

Not open to younger than YA or narratives that go against Islamic principles. Will consider male authors but highly selective with limited email communication.
