The Agadir Forum of the Novel in Morocco Directed by VCCA Fellow

The second annual Agadir Forum in the city of Agadir, Morocco, was held May 25-28. The Forum celebrated the fantasy novel and honored Moroccan and Arab novelists. Organized by the Southern Writers Association, the director was Abdel Aziz Errachidi, who was Fellow at VCCA last summer as one of the Hay Festival's Beirut39 writers.

The event attracted diverse and esteemed writers from Morocco and all over the Arab world. They discussed fantasy writing in their culture, its manifestations in the literary text and its impact on the Arab world.
