 WRITING DAY, Saida – Sunday 17 February

Going strong for the second year running, Writing Day is the first and only networking event for professional and aspiring creative writers in Lebanon!

WRITING DAY is coming to Saida! Join us for a very special edition of Lebanon’s only networking event for creative writers!

What do we do at WRITING DAY?
We talk writing. We read about it. We live it. We drink it. We write. And write again. We meet other writers and we really connect on a creative level. Come be part of our growing creative community.

Who can join us:
– Non-writers who are interested in writing more
– Writers who have projects
– Readers (we love you, please join us)
– The person who has written and loves it but maybe hasn’t done it in a long time but knows they can and maybe this is a good chance to start (we’re looking at you!)
– Creatives who want to try out some writing
– Those who are curious – can I write?
– Those who wonder, will this help me write better at work?

Just bring a notebook, a pen, and an easy-going attitude (if you’re working on a project, go ahead and bring your laptop). You will be surrounded by like-minded writers from all over Saida at Ishbilia Theatre and Art-Hub, a perfect place to get inspired.

Your host Lara El Mekkawi will give an opening talk about working in publishing, writing, editing and the joys and pains of all those things. She will introduce you to our favorite writing exercise so that everyone can get the pen moving! Keep in mind, we have amazing workshops, seminars, coaching sessions … but WRITING DAY is not a structured class. It’s an informal gathering and it’s a lot of fun!

Date: Saturday 17 November
Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Location: Sarvam Yoga, Gemmayze

Open Mic: Poetry for Everybody x Sarvam Yoga

Started 3 years ago, Poetry for Everybody is still the inclusive space that it’s always been – welcoming all walks of poet – the new, the seasoned, the brave and the shy as we all fit under one mic 🙂

… This special edition will take place at the VERY special and serene Sarvam Yoga red house in Gemmayze and will be entirely open mic.

Our mission with our poetry readings is to remind each other that poetry is indeed for EVERYBODY. It doesn’t have to be boring or outdated; it doesn’t have to be for an elite few who “get it.” Poetry is meant to be read out loud and enjoyed by everybody, and where better than at the warm, quaint space at Sarvam.

Headed by #fadeinpoet Nadine Makarem and hosted by FADE IN: and Sarvam Yoga this poetry night is laid-back, inspiring, and full of honest poetry.

The evening will go as such:
– We’ll begin with music and mingling, and enjoy some in-house drinks as the sign up sheet travels around
– Open mic will begin and we’ll find out why TRUE poetry is all about being true to yourself!
– Small intermission
– More poets, more poetry!

LOCATION: Sarvam Yoga, The RED HOUSE, Gemmayze
