COMMUNITY CREATIVE WRITING

Write CY is a Nicosia-based platform for creative writing and community storytelling. We're relocating and will be up and running again in a brand new space in April 2019. In the meantime, check out our spring program. To keep up with our latest news and events, consider signing up for our newsletter. It's free and we don't send too many.

STORIES

Write CY Stories features stories about and by local storytellers. If you’ve got something to say, or you've got a lead, get in touch here. We can’t promise we’ll be working together, but we promise to return your email.

Spring 2019 Creative Writing Workshops.gif

Our spring program is out! Starting 8 April, we’ll be at our new digs in Pallouriotissa with a new line-up of creative writing and storytelling workshops in English and Greek, including workshops on narrative non-fiction, live storytelling, place-making poetry, Cypriot lit, zine making, and——rumor has it——Mateo “The Nose” Jarrín Cuvi will join us for more wine writing (i.e. drinking).

 

OPEN MIC NIGHT 17

WHERE YOU BEEN SO LONG?

Where You Been So Long? v2

Where have you been? We miss you. Seriously. Don’t get the wrong idea. We’re not stalking you. We’re just trying to make contact. Like a friend on Facebook who is not a real friend but you’re like, “If I knew this person in real life, maybe we could be friends.” That friend. Open Mic Night 17 is going down hard at Prozak Kafeneio on 27 February, about two weeks after you eat your last piece of Valentine’s Day chocolate.

Have an idea for a workshop or course? We’re always looking for writers, poets, storytellers and spoken word performers who want to share their craft with the community.

Yes, we've got swag. Feast your eyes on this new set of Write CY posters based on the original Write CY Tote Bag designs. Perfect for inspiration on those days when serious advice and quotes from your favorite writers just sound lame. Check back in a few days for order details. If you have any urgent questions or needs, as in "God, I need one of these now!", please email us here.
