SABLE Writer’s Hotspot
SABLE LitMag have been organising their Writer’s Hotspot trips since 1996 when we started going to The Gambia. In between building our artist retreat in The Gambia we will be organising our trips in other countries.
In February 2014 we will be going to Egypt. This will be a 14 day trip. Spaces are limited to 30 writers. We will be meeting and working with writers in a creative space in Cairo and Alexandria at the Bibliotecha. Activities will include:
Hold literary seminars
Visiting major ancient egypyian and contemporary sites
Staying in a Nubian village
Time on your own to explore and write
Meeting members from the elgouna writers residency
Attending and participating in poetry reading events
These are self funded trips. We cannot offer bursaries. SABLE LitMag endeavours to keep the overall costs to a minimum. Please register your interest by emailing
email@example.com, so that you will be the first to be sent updates on this and other HotSpot trips.
