What is Protag?

penThe word “Protag” does not apply only to Muslims — it is, at its simplest, a mere abbreviation of “protagonist.” It is a call for people of all marginalized or Otherized backgrounds to be protagonists in their own fields,  to challenge mainstream assumptions and proactively — rather than reactively — produce their own narratives and write their own stories.

Protag is the blog and online magazine of The Muslim Protagonist Symposium, a place for writers, artists, and thinkers of all faiths and cultures to publish fiction and nonfiction on literature and art as agents of social, spiritual, and intellectual change. Updates and news on The Muslim Protagonist Symposium, and related projects, will be posted here.
