American Women Writers of Muslim Heritage


This resource is an educational resource presenting texts and voices influenced by the Muslim world created by Betsey Coleman. As a veteran teacher who has traveled the world to create projects and resources for American students, her purpose for curating this collection of short readings, biographical information, creative writing prompts and student models is to introduce middle, high and even university students to the diversity of American women’s voices influenced by the Muslim world. A Distinguished Award in Teaching Fulbright and other grants such as the National Endowment for the Humanities have made her research possible.
