Association of Muslim Women Authors in South Africa (AMWASA)

AMWASA aims to build a vibrant community and to create a supportive space for Muslim Women writers in order to address their challenges, and connect, collaborate, and amplify their voices. The network aims to break down barriers and promote diversity in the literary industry.

Imagine a network of Muslim authors and author-related services collaborating under the AMWASA umbrella.

For readers, young and old, we aim to create a safe haven of good books which are free from questionable content. Look out for our Stamp of Approval and rest assured that literature which features our stamp has been vetoed and approved by qualified aalimahs who are supervised by members of the esteemed Ulama.
