Creative Writing Workshops in Tunisia: A House in the Making An Article Written by Ali Znaidi

Dzekashu MacViban was good enough to publish my article “Creative Writing Workshops in Tunisia: A House in the Making” in his awesome magazine Bakwa Magazine (Cameroon/USA/Uganda/Germany) on February 03, 2015.

This is the first paragraph:

Can creative writing be taught? This question poses more issues than answers. Teaching creative writing is an established tradition in the West, especially in Anglophone countries. The first MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) in creative writing was inaugurated in the United States of America in 1936 under the leadership of Wilbur Schramm. His Iowa Writers’ Workshop became a starting point if not a beacon for writing programs worldwide. The Iowa Writers’ Workshop has since its inception given writers the necessary tools to excel and achieve success both at home and internationally.
