It’s not likely a good time to be raising funds for a three-day Arab-American literature conference — set to take place in Minneapolis, Minn. mid-September — but, if it weren’t for literature, how would we make the world bearable?
We need support in order to bring you the 5th National RAWI Conference with Mizna– three days of performances, readings, workshops, panels, a film screening, a mixer, and a culminating celebration which will include the Arab American Book Awards ceremony. The conference will take place at Open Book in Minneapolis, MN, 9/18-20.
The conference is open to the public and will feature writers, artists, translators, editors, performers, and educators. This gathering will include a series of panels, workshops, and seminars on the topic of writing and Arab American literature, readings and performances, as well as several networking opportunities. As part of our goal to foster and support new voices within Arab American literature, we will be highlighting workshops and panels designed specifically for emerging writers.
