Today in Palestine, education is mostly based on memorization and there is nearly no funding for the arts. However we believe that arts — and particularly writing — is one of the most important ways that young people can learn to deal with their trauma and express themselves. That’s why we’re starting a creative writing program that will give emerging Palestinian writers the opportunity to participate in a weekly creative writing session for a year. At the end of the year, we’ll be publishing a book of the young writers’ works and will provide donors with a copy.
For $250 you can give an emerging Palestinian writer a voice and the opportunity to participate in the Creative Writing Program. If you’re interested in sponsoring a writer, please click the link below. We’d also be happy to suppor you in organizing an event to raise funds for several writers and can provide a detailed proposal for this project if you contact us.
