Arab Daily News seeks freelance writers on Arab American issues
Chicago, Il, USA — The Arab Daily News, an online newspaper website that provides original and compelling writing and content on Americans Arabs, Muslims and the Middle East, is seeking press releases from American Arab and Muslim organizations, groups and businesses.
“We are specifically interested in news from Arabs in America and bringing that news together to not only inform Arabs about their activities, events and organizations, but also to help better educate non-Arabs about Arab culture and its Christian and Muslim religious identities,” said Managing Editor Ray Hanania.
A 37 year professional journalism veteran, Hanania said The Arab Daily News Online Newspaper is hoping to supplement existing online news distribution services like PR Buzz and PR News Wire.
“We are seeking to become a part of that network by helping American Arabs to recognize the power of press releases and to document their activities and existence in this country,” said Hanania, who has received numerous professional journalism awards including in 2007 being named “Best Ethnic American Columnist” by the New America Media in San Francisco.
“American Arabs do not do a good enough job in telling their story. The first thing to do is document and write your story and then distribute it to the mainstream media.”
Hanania said not enough effort is put into public relations, press releases and professional communications by American Arab and Muslim organizations, leaders and businesses.
“We don’t tell our story and yet we complain often about how we, as American Arabs who have been in America since the middle of the 19th Century, are not included in news media reporting or in the mainstream media and entertainment industries,” Hanania said.
“There is a bias and discrimination against American Arabs but our failure to professionally engage the public through strategic communications and to use professional wire services also contributes to our exclusion from American and Western society.”
The Arab Daily News Online Newspaper employees a staff of professional freelance writers throughout the United States, in the Middle East and in Europe to compile original news and feature content that is showcased on the online newspaper website.
“We also place press releases on our feeder press release website, the Arab American News Wire online at http://www.AANewsWire.com,” said Hanania, encouraging individuals and organizations in the Arab American and Muslim community or that work with the American Arab and Muslim community to submit their press releases for inclusion on the online newspaper website.
Since launching in October 2013, The Arab Daily News has attracted a large following on Facebook and Twitter, along with subscribers interested in quality news and feature stories that profile and document the activities and events of the Arab American community.
“We are interested in freelance writer submissions and we pay for those services,” Hanania said. “We offer some commentary and op-ed but we are most interested in news and feature articles that are original and written exclusively for our publication The Arab Daily News Online Newspaper. We are also interested in press releases about our community from both the community and professional wire services, too,” Hanania said.
