First Open Mic Event

We are thrilled to announce that our first open mic event was held on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at Aaliya's Books in Gemmayze, Beirut! Majd Shidiac, a spoken-word poet based in Beirut, hosted the event, which allowed Write to Remember participants to share their writing with the larger community. We were touched by the participants' words, and we commend our participants for their courage, willingness, and eagerness to share their stories and to support each other during the event.
