FMEP is proud to support the 2023 Palestine Writes literature festival, to be hosted on September 22-24 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. Palestine Writes is the only North American literature festival dedicated to celebrating and promoting cultural productions of Palestinian writers and artists. Crossing multiple borders—geographic, linguistic, and cultural boundaries—writers, artists, publishers, booksellers, scholars, musicians, and thinkers hold conversations about art, literature, and the intersections between culture and power, struggle, politics, climate change, sexuality, human rights, animal rights, food sovereignty, and more. The festival boasts panel discussions, workshops, music, children’s programming, networking, readings, dance, theatre, cooking, oral storytelling, cooking, and other creative expressions of culture. Palestine Writes showcases brilliant voices devoted to the belief that art challenges repression and creates bonds between Palestine and the rest of the world.
