CWAM at Science in the City

A huge thank you to all who came out for some writing or a chat with us at CWAM’s stand during this year’s Science in the City. For those of you who missed it, we used the Research our NGO event to present some of our research into the writing industry in the US and UK, as part of our #GatheringIntel campaign. Take a look at what we know, and help us to build our knowledge about the industry right here in Malta by filling out our survey, if you haven’t already.

But it wasn’t all just numbers and gloom. As part of our exhibit, we also took the opportunity to share short pieces of prose and poetry from both established and emerging Maltese writers. Passerby were invited to take a bit of literature home with them–and we were absolutely delighted to see how many shorts were adopted by eager readers.

And of course, we were also thrilled to meet some of our authors in person!

If you missed this event, don’t worry. CWAM has much more planned for the coming year. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, and if you haven’t signed up to our mailing list, make sure to do so if you want to receive all our vital updates. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

CWAM Asks // Malcolm Galea

As you all know, we’ve been working hard in preparation for our Gathering Intel session on Saturday. As part of that, we asked local scriptwriter, Malcolm Galea, what he thought about working conditions for writers in Malta. This is what he had to say.
