Jordan: New Website for Short Stories

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Jordan, Arts & Culture, Literature, Youth

Project Pen is an initiative to promote short story writing by Arabs and “encourage a new generation of writers, creating new kinds of stories, for a new kind of readership”. By sharing stories across social media, and by connecting writers with each other, Project Pen intends to bypass traditional publishing and take storytelling “back to a future when stories were carved out on cave walls, and spoken out over the camp fire”. You can find out more at the project's website [1] (in Arabic and English), and on Facebook [2] and Twitter [3].
