The Olive Writers
program aims to hone participants’ skills as creative writers while also putting them in contact with influential writers who will serve as mentors to them, 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 seminars on Arabic and American literature, as well as daily bilingual creative writing workshops held in both English and Arabic, allowing participants to revise and refine a creative project and to explore questions of craft.
