DESA | Creative Writing Dayathon

DESA | Creative Writing Dayathon

A day filled with workshops and activities to finally get you to write that amazing idea you’ve had at the back of your mind for years!

Whether you decide to come for a full day or half a day, you are guaranteed to have a creative and productive time within an encouraging environment, surrounded by people just as motivated as yourself; and lots and lots of coffee.

The main workshops will be held at 9am – for those applying for the full day – and at 1pm – for those applying for half a day – and will be chaired by renowned poet Dr Abigail Ardelle Zammit, who has had multiple works published in journals such as Orbis, Myslexia, Drunken Boat, and Ink; and is a visiting lecturer at the University of Malta for the English unit ‘Creative Writing’.

Our goal is for you to create a finished piece of writing with the chance to have it published on DESA’s own online journal TEXT. and to have it performed or displayed during the KSU Culture Fest. Along with Abigail Zammit, our editors will be there to help perfect your work and cheer you on to reach your writing target of the day!

In order to apply, contact us on desa.uom@gmail.com and make sure to include a short description of your previous experience with creative writing, if applicable.
