I came across an announcement that caught my attention: a literary open-mic night. Only the one event I’ve forever dreamed of! The catch? It’s not Kuwait who’s hosting the event. It’s The Writing Club in Riyadh, who will be holding the event at The Sheraton Hotel, their sponsor, on February 15th at 7 PM.
Writing enthusiasts can attend and listen to young and talented aspiring female writers perform their literary works.
You can RSVP here: Literary Open-Mic Night
More info on their club can be found on their website: http://riyadhwritingclub.wordpress.com/
I genuinely think this is worth taking a trip to Riyadh for, and I really hope I’ll be able to attend this remarkable initiative taken by young Saudi women.
Note: this is a public event for women only.
