Submit a Guest Essay
Michigan Radio is inviting the audience to submit guest essays for publication on the Muslims in Michigan project website. Send your essay as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, and include a short bio, contact email (if different than the one used for submission), and, if possible, a photo of yourself.
The essay should focus on the topic of Muslim life in the state of Michigan. These can be based on personal experience, observation, interviews or research. The length should be at least 500 words.
Feel free to include an image to go with your essay, as long as you created it or you have the right to use it. Please include a link to the original image if it’s a Creative Commons photo from Flickr or a free-use image from a stock photo website like Stock.xchng.
Aside from the subject requirement, we also ask that guest contributors help promote their essay in any way possible. Please send the link to friends, family and coworkers, and post the URL on your personal website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Reddit, etc.
Essays will be subject to the terms of Michigan Radio’s User Agreement, specifically in regard to discrimination and hate speech. Michigan Radio will not edit the content of essays, but we may make grammatical corrections according to AP Style.
We want to clarify that we will not be taking pitches, selecting from submissions or paying for essays. We will publish any essay that meets our general guidelines.
