Project Pen is a high-impact next generation publishing concept for emerging creative and fiction writers in the Middle East. Online and offline we encourage new forms of digital expression and storytelling to create “a new generation of writers, creating new kinds of stories, for a new kind of readership.”
Project Pen is responsible for the region’s first English and Arabic twitter storytelling contest, the region’s first collaborative storytelling event called “Storylabs”, and for freely available ebooks on Ipad and Kindle such as ‘Stories from Amman, Manga Stories and Twitter Stories.”
We have partnered with EUNIC, Darat Al Funun, Syntax, Wasat Al Balad, Hakaya Storytelling Festival, Stonethrow Studios, Umniah, Spin Jordan, Al Bawaba News, TasmeemeME, BeAmman and worked with singers, storytellers, musicians, artists, developers, and programmers across Jordan and the Middle East.
Project Pen is currently incubating at the Tech accelerator Oasis500, at the King Hussein Business Park in Jordan.
