Supporting a community of emerging writers in Palestine to give voice to our stories, to write our narratives, and claim our rights through creative writing and storytelling.
At the heart of the Palestine Writing Workshop, of course, are the writers. If you are interested in writing or are a writer and want to develop your skills, check out the many different trainings we offer, join a book club, or read poetry at an event. No matter what your interest, we would love for you to come and be a part of our community! Browse our website, email us, or just come by and meet other writers.
If the idea is to build a community of writers, we need also to develop those who can edit texts, publish books, programme and produce literature festivals, and mentor writers. A key ingredient for all of this is the teacher, and to this end we have programmes that train strong candidates to “pay forward” their knowledge as facilitators.
We organize poetry readings with open mic space for new voices to participate as well as book readings with authors both local and visiting. Check out what we are up to under the Upcoming section of our website and join us for some literary fun.
I Love Books!
Come enjoy a cup of tea and a great book in our Reading Room. Also, we run book clubs. Just email us to find out when we are running one in your area and you are welcome to join, or you can get together a group of friends and start your own! We’ll provide you the books, discussion questions and even a facilitator if you like.
