As part of the Short Stories Programme initiated by KfW Stiftung in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut, the edition “Jericho Short Stories” addresses outstanding young writing talents who live in Palestine and write in their mother tongue Arabic. In the framework of writing workshops the participants discuss literary examples of short stories and explore writing techniques to develop their own story. A nominated jury of experts evaluates the results. The best texts will be translated into English and published bilingually on ‘adda’, the online magazine of Commonwealth Writers

The writing workshops offer a platform for dialogue as well as professional training on the topics of editing, translation and publication.

Under the direction of writer Adania Shibli, the workshops took place in three parts from October to December 2018.

Jericho Short Stories is a project by KfW Stiftung in cooperation with Goethe-Institut Ramallah and Commonwealth Writers, the cultural initiative of the Commonwealth Foundation, London.
