After having attended “The Other Writers ’Group”in Paris, Farah Chamma was inspired to start a similar writing workshop in Arabic. “Warsheh” will focus on the link between personal writing and collective criticism and address the subject of how a text is perceived and the effect it has on readers.

Those interested in participating should bring 10 copies of the text they’d like to share. A collective reading of the text will then take place inorder for feedback to be given to the writer depending on what he or she is looking for. Writing should be no longerthan 3 pages inorder to give everyone the opportunity to share their work. All genres of writing are welcome.
