KWC is my second home; it is my creative shelter, and my anchor to the community of creatives in Kuwait. It has pushed my limits, torn down my discomfort with my writing, and helped me grow vastly and unimaginably. I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for the Writing Club. It will always, always be part of who I am. We’ve written about topics that span from ‘Socks’, to phrases like ‘But Daddy I love him’, to words we’ve never even heard of or used, like ‘Sciamachy’. To say that I love this club would be unjust, because it has become a big part of who I am.

KWC is my grounds of creativity. I’ve been exploring the art of writing for a while now – since a young age, on the stage, in differentgenres and styles. KWC’s wonderful collective of writers helped me find my voice and lead me in correct paths. From the varying topics we write about and the feedback I’ve received to help me grow not only creatively but literally in my works, whether poetry or prose. Our writing prompts and collaborations helped leave my comfort zone and explore new grounds of writing creatively. The skills I earned, as a result, helped me write for theatre, comedic skits, and for screenplays. The open mic events that wereorgangzed, the hours and effort put forth by the members to not only showcase our works on social media, but on the stage as well. I cannot thank KWC enough, and certainly cannot thank Hawra’a Khalfan enough for her endless energy and enthusiasm, the approbation and excellency of her dedication to the community of Anglophone writers in Kuwait is beyond description!

KWC is an asylum to the vagabonds of creativity, it is a laboratory inside a labyrinth inside an academy of wizardry inside a courthouse where constructive critiques are casted frequently.
