  • Postponed !!! : Weekend of December 11 and 12, 2021: Creative writing workshop

MURS-MURS: Writing Palestine – The Creative Writing Workshop offered by CPJPO & led by Jean Portante “MURS-MURS” is being postponed most probably till June. The reason are the new covid measures and the G2 rule prohibiting non vaccinated people to participate, even though they present a negative test result.

The objective of the workshop is to create the conditions for the emergence of the novel in writing. Each participant will be led, by writing techniques, to enter into the depth of words and of the hidden links they have between themselves… Which will lead to the poem.

The vehicular language will be French, but contributions in other languages ​are welcome. Details and registration:
