Connecting American Writers of Middle Eastern Backgrounds through a Workshop

Workshop Led by:
Weam Namou - Yatooma
Novelist, Poet & Freelance Writer

In this FREE Creative Writing Workshop:

● You receive honest, constructive feedback.
● The courses are structured towards your learning style.
● You’re allowed to write at your own pace.
● You learn to write with a published author as your mentor.

American Writers of Middle Eastern background have been around for a long time but have not been acknowledged even though…

Writing started in Mesopotamia, now called Iraq, over 7300 years ago. The first writer in recorded history was Enheduanna, a woman from ancient Iraq. She lived, composed and taught roughly 2,000 years before Aristotle.

This workshop is designed to improve your writing skills and allow you to reach your full writing potential. Whether you're dreaming of writing the great American novel or you've just got a few poems you're trying to publish, this workshop is for you!
