It’s time to update everyone on what projects I’m currently working on, where I’m writing, and what’s in store for next year. First, I’m still writing my Sharp Edges column over at Shadowproof, freelancing as a contributing writer for Paste Magazine Politics, and co-hosting the Delete Your Account podcast with Kumars Salehi. Adding on to this, I’m writing for Mondoweiss, working as a researcher for an independent media publication, contributing to Verso Book’s blog, and I’m working on compiling a collection of essays on Islamophobia and anti-Arab discrimination called Pillars Of The Temple [image of the (work-in-progress) cover is below]
I’ll be working with an artist to create a fitting image for the cover that can acompany the very minimalist design I’ve created above. This will be an entirely independent project and will feature essays that I haven’t published elsewhere—once it’s done, which I’m hoping will be around February, I will be selling it primarily through my website.
In other news, I’ve pulled the plug on my personal Patreon page due to the many issues I was having with the service, and due to me wanting to drive more traffic to my own website. So, in its place, I’ve decided to run monthly fundraising campaigns here. The first one will cover the cost of putting this collection of essays together, living expenses, and anything else associated with my work. You can donate by using the button below:
If you're able to, consider supporting this project and costs associated with my writing work!$0.00 donated of $1,000.00 goal
Finally, I am always looking for freelance work and if you have something available do not hesitate to drop me a line. You can send an email to roq.chams [@] gmail.com
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to send me an email. Thanks to everyone for the tremendous support this year!
