It’s that time of year again!
As in previous years (see 2013 and 2012), we’ll be taking a break from the usual media analysis that you see at MMW, and instead we’ll be sharing more personal experiences and reflections on Ramadan from the various perspectives represented among MMW writers, as well as some guest contributors. We look forward to sharing the posts and to hearing from our readers about what Ramadan is like for you. As the month goes on, links to the Ramadan posts will be added at the bottom of this post, so you can keep checking back here if you want to make sure you don’t miss anything.
Ramadan kareem! We wish you a beautiful, meaningful, and transformative month.
