The Olive Writers program aims to hone participants’ skills as creative writers while also putting them in contact with established writers who will serve as mentors, providing wider exposure for their creative work, introducing them to the publishing world, and granting them access to national and international support networks of fellow young writers.

The Summer Camp, our flagship program, provides a six-day-long writing retreat for Moroccan writers between the ages of 16-21. Participants attend a daily bilingual (Arabic/English) creative writing workshop, as well as seminars on Arabic and American literature and lectures by leading writers, translators and publishers. During the camp, participants will draft, revise and refine a creative project that will be published by The Olive Writers as an e-book anthology.
