Writers' Iftar - a lovely eve!

Last night was a Writers' Centre event in collaboration with El Mesa7a Arts and Culture Centre in Dokki and we had a lovely time!

We first sat in the outdoor mezzanine space, eating and chatting (yum yum to Omar's mum who makes the BEST grilled vegetable platter and spicy potatoes!) then we moved (due to the heat) to one of the rooms inside the cultural centre and started the series of readings.

Not only was it great to hear people's work, but we also had a discussion about publishing in Egypt and arrived at some future plans for integrating work into university syllabuses and other ideas.

Look out for upcoming events and news and see photos from the iftar on the photostream on

And here is one from the night below ;)
