First RAWI Conference

RAWI, the Arab American writers’ association, will host its first conference June 3-5 in New York City. The indomitable Helen Thomas, veteran White House correspondent, will give the keynote address. Panels, discussions, and workshops will be held on such varied topics as scriptwriting, language teaching, hybridity, and criticism. I will be moderating a panel on literary blogs and I still need one more person to round out the discussion. So, if you are a lit blogger, and are Arab American or interested in issues of concern to Arab American writers, send me an email with a bio at llalami AT yahoo DOT com.
