The meeting is intended as a platform for outreach to women writers and women of literature of Arabic and African decent, and a meeting place between them and their counterparts from around the world. It also aims, according to the organizers, to shed light on the tangible and intangible heritage, to reveal women writers’ creativity  and to encourage young people to write with the help of dedicated workshops led by professionals.

The thirteenth edition of the International Female Writers Conference, which will be chaired by the Moroccan poet Fatima Zahra Bennis, will continue on October 29 in Tangiers, Fez and Rabat.

The International Female Writers Conference (EIDE) was founded by the Peruvian writer Elizabeth Altamirano in 1988.
