Voices From the Arab World project - seeking funding

Date:10 March 2013 to
28 March 2014

Life Narrative Research Group are currently seeking funding for an ambitious new project:

Voices From the Arab World: A Peer to Peer Writers' Fellowship

A fellowship program which will create a much needed physical and virtual space for writers from the Middle East, including the Gulf and North Africa, seeking a global platform for literary self-expression in English in both print and digital formats. 

Through its partners, The D-Academy, Beyond Borders Scotland, The Life Narrative Research Group and the Kingston Writing School at Kingston University, London, and the Human Rights Program at University of Minnesota, this fellowship will support, strengthen and enable global access voices from the Arab world by training writers from the MENA region in the use of global communication technologies, providing professional mentoring in writing skills and styles appropriate to different media and markets, as well as offering industry advice on the dissemination and sales of their writing in these new markets. 

These objectives will be enhanced by the production, publication and marketing of an annual anthology in English of the work of these writers.
