Ministry of Culture promotes Saudi creative literature
The Ministry of Culture has launched a seven-day writing retreat on Dec 4, in Unayzah with short story writing as the focus of the opening session.
The seven-day retreat, the first of its kind in Saudi Arabia. Each session will deal with a specific genre of writing as the retreat moves to different areas of Saudi Arabia.
Ten Saudi and Arab writers will gather in locations around the Kingdom to share their literary experiences and hold discussion workshops.
The Ministry of Culture hopes the retreat will support creative writing, allowing authors to meet and share their experiences.
